Across the globe, book fairies meet up with authors who would like to be a ‘book fairy for a day’ – and this story is from Bulgaria, with author Camellia Kutcher!
Book Fairy for a Day in Sofia
The Book Fairies are always THRILLED when different authors, libraries, bookshops and publishers are excited to become a part of book fairies and help us spread the love of books! Recently as a Book Fairy For A Day, Camillia Kutcher joined our official book fairy in Bulgaria to hide copies of her new book “Night” around Sofia!
An Author becomes a Book Fairy!
October 11th turned out to be a great sunny autumn day for book drops in Sofia! Bulgarian writer Camellia Kutcher and our official book fairy in the country, Ilka, joined forces and made several new readers very happy. Camellia Kutcher just released her second novel “Night” on October 10 th . She prepared three copies of her brand new book to hide at central locations in Sofia, starting with the National Theater Ivan Vazov. The other books were left at the Vassiveli Brothers stand nearby, and at the Slaveikov Square.
Adding a personal touch
Camellia wrote personal messages in all the books. She also prepared another surprise book to hide – one of her favourite novels “Confessions” by Jaume Cabré. The novel is already out of print in Bulgaria and Camellia hid her personal copy. “Confessions” was hidden at another popular place in Sofia, the Eternal Flame.
“I have followed the book fairies for some time and loved hiding books today! The whole experience is so positive and rewarding! I will do it again”Camellia Kutcher, Book Fairy for the Day
About Camillia’s book:
Set in Rome in 1943 and Umbria in 1991, “Night” tells the story of Vitorio who, as a young boy, dreamed of becoming part of the world of his beloved Eva, and shares his story years later when he is reminded of Eva. This is a book about courage and fear, friendship and the price of happiness, a story about the life choices we make and the power of love. Finally, this is a story about betrayal, forgiveness and self-forgiveness.
“We always love working with authors. Hiding books with Camellia today was a true pleasure”Ilka, Official Book Fairy for Bulgaria
Thank you to Ilka, our Official Book Fairy of Bulgaria, for sharing this wonderful story about her day with author Camillia Kutcher in Sofia.
