On April 25, at 5:30 pm, Hristo Tsokev Martin Ivanov will present the book “Malachite Forest”. The Aprilov-Palauzov Republic and the host gallery of the event organized the meeting with the readers in Gabrovo.
Malachite Forest is an inspiring story of path and meaning, fighting fears and despair, and the light at the end of the tunnel.
The music album in the book contains nine compositions that follow the book’s content, and each corresponds to the head of the text. The reader can read the lyrics, listen to the music and feel the main character’s story with their heart and soul.
It was a story of how one can find strength and faith in the most significant suffering and tragedy to turn personal tragedy into triumph and suffering into a human achievement.
“Every book/disc sold will ensure planting of a tree in the forests needing help in Bulgaria”, said Martin Ivanov.
