The Bulgakov Society in Hong Kong hosted a literary dinner on 29 October, 2021. Held at a new venue for the society, the Foreign Correspondent’s Club https://instagram.com/fcchkfcc, which did not disappoint – great to meet in person and the evening was filled with lively repartee.

The dinner focused on one of Bulgakov’s most celebrated works, "Notes on a Cuff", which reflects Bulgakov’s  life and experiences in the Caucasus, including Georgia. Georgia became the leitmotif of the event, and guests enjoyed Georgian Khvanchkara wine with their meal. Seasoned sommeliers among the guests noted that there was a reason why Khvanchkara was Stalin’s favourite wine!

In November 2019, members of the Bulgakov Society visited the Bulgakov Museum in Moscow.

Julia Charlton and Anastasia Gordeeva went to several excursions, visited the house of the Master and Margarita – the heroes of Bulgakov’s most famous novel, and also checked the apartment of the writer.

An interesting part of the program was a walk along the Patriarshiye Ponds – the legendary place from the novel “The Master and Margarita”, where the characters of the story talked about the meaning of life, sitting on a bench.

Also, members of the Bulgakov Society had a chance to visit the house of the Mikhail Bulgakov`s uncle, who became the prototype of one of the heroes of the novel “Heart of a Dog” Dr Preobrazhensky.

Like all Bulgakov’s works, each of the excursions was filled with an atmosphere of mystery and magic.

A visit to the Bulgakov Museum and other places related to his life and work is a great opportunity to learn more about the writer and see the beautiful places of the capital of Russia.

Dear friends!
Here we are in 2022! We would like to start the New Year with a new mailing of literature works by M. A. Bulgakov, namely one of his most famous works - "The Heart of a Dog".

So, imagine: winter in Moscow, a strong blizzard is blowing, there is no one on the street. But in such a harsh atmosphere, a meeting took place, which in hindsight had incredible consequences.

More details in Chapter 1 you can find here: https://bulgakovsociety.com/the-heart-of-a-dog-chapter-i-weekly-reads/
