This year it is planned to make a visit to Stará Pazova, Kovačica, Padina, Báčsky Petrovec, Hložany, Kulpín and anywhere else where the interest for Slovak publication will be shown, said Vladimír Valentík.

 Before dedicating time to the main two publications Vladimír Valenntík has mentioned also other publications like the collections of poems  Krajina divých jabloní of the author Michal Ďuga and  Takmer o ničom of the author Martin Prebudila, the book of essays named Hovorenie v úvodzovkách from the author Adam Svetlík, the book Básnická a prozaická tvorba Juraja Tušiaka from the author Jozef Valihora, the book of publicistic texts of  Andrej Ferka  Od prózy k básňam of the author Víťazoslav Hronec, a book for adolescents  Sú to vážne veci from the author Mária Kotvášová-Jonášová.

After a brief presentation of yearly publishing work the presentation of Chrestomatia slovenskej vojvodinskej poézie of the author Víťazoslav Hronec which is by the words of Vladimír Valentík of a great meaning for the Vojvodina’s Slovaks. But also he showed his disappointment that media of Slovak minority has somehow overlooked it trough. We are not achieving a lot of success when it comes to renewing the true cultural values of Slovak minority. These books deserve bigger attention because they are not common and they cannot be written in a month but a lot more observation is needed, said Vladimír Valentík.

To his own work called Chrestomatia slovenskej vojvodinskej poézie the author Víťazoslav Hronec dedicated few words by which he tried to explain the audience how does the process of making this kind of work look like.

The idea about making writing this book was born back in the 70’s when the author got employed in the Publishing centre and he was dedicated to bringing together the anthology of the Slovak poetry from Vojvodina. At first it looked like a history of poetry making but later on the author himself found out that he has not only to read the poems but also to read every poem which was published in magazines in Serbia and Slovakia so he decided to make a chrestomathy.  In the chrestomathy there are 82 authors from who only 10 of them are poets the others are beginners, versifications, etc. But every poem has something special for itself, said Víťazoslav Hronec. Two poems were interpreted by Katarína Mosnaková.
