Kyiv, Ukraine (PRUnderground) December 19th, 2019
Andrei Tuzhikov, born in Chernivtsi, became a nominee for the Prize of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine named after Lesia Ukrainka for the LuckyBooks project book “Short History of Technology, or How to Understand Your Gadget.” This news was announced by one of the initiators of the project, investor, IT businessman, and co-founder of Lucky Labs Rustam Gilfanov.
Tuzhikov’s book, together with 28 books of other authors, is presented in the nomination “Best literary and artistic works for children and the youth.” The book was published by the publishing house “Chorni Vivtsi” as part of the Lucky Labs charity project. In 2018, the project distributed the book for free to 200 libraries in the East and South of Ukraine. Later, along with two other books of the project, Tuzhikov’s book was included in the state procurement lists for Ukrainian libraries.
Another book of the LuckyBooks project “Book About Garbage” by Tkachuk Galyna was included in the top books of the end of 2019 according to readers of the National Library of Ukraine for Children.
“When we started the LuckyBooks project, we noticed there is a serious shortage of Ukrainian-language non-fiction literature for teenagers. During several years, we have published seven books and distributed over 10,000 copies of educational literature for children in Ukrainian libraries. Now, the situation has improved. Now, Ukrainian writers pay more attention to scientific literature, and publishers are more interested in entertaining and relevant non-fiction books. And we are glad that our project keeps the level, and the project’s books and authors take prizes in various competitions,” says co-founder of Lucky Labs Rustam Gilfanov.
The Prize of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine named after Lesia Ukrainka for the best literary and artistic works for children and the youth has been awarded annually since 2004 in four categories. Last year, Ivan Andrusyak received the Prize for works for children and youth for his books “Little Bunny Book” and “Third Snow.”
