Karina Pētersone: Literature Makes Us Who We Are – Books – Culture +



"Without it, a person can not be grateful, because there are few people with everyday experience. There is not enough life in one. The books provide what is the essence and essence of emotions, the essence of these many quotes of many lives, patterns of life, relationships and relationships that they can throw a lot of such a very simple word – "I'm what I read" or "I read and I," says Carina Pētersone in an interview.

Her story is recorded in a monumental library in which Karina Pētersone grew up. Among other stories about the "library story", this is unique, as the director of the LNB Support Society talks about the family's relationship with the literature of several generations.

By exchanging thoughts, Carina Pt emphasizes the importance of Latvian literature in the life of every Latvian language and the need to read the fairytale when the child develops: "It seems to me that we do not appreciate the role of classic fairy tales in human life, in searching for what our children should read. A few archetypes of world relations are included in the story. Our children read only today's works, which are often very high quality and very well published. However, it seems to me that they must be spoiled and balanced with folklore – something that has been crystallized over the centuries, because there is some kind of way of life there. I'm afraid that we will not lose our wisdom coming from old landfills. "

Interestingly, Carin Pētersone mentioned the book by Eric Kestner Point and Anton as a book that influenced his life.
