Творческий вечер - огромная для меня радость, а теперь еще и можно приглашать друзей отовсюду. Ведущая - прекрасная Регина Хидекель Regina Khidekel. Буду читать старое и новое минут сорок-пятьдесят, отвечать на вопросы и просто смотреть на любимых друзей в окошки. Жду, буду счастлива, если кто-то придет послушать!
