Birthplace of Mária Kočanová

The historical novel "With Perun on a Shield" by Mária Kočanová and the stories "Seaguard" penned by Ľudovít Petraško were presented not only in P. O. Hviezdoslav’s Library in Prešov, but also in Ľubotice on the same day (07/11/2014 at 4 pm) where the event took place under the auspices of the mayor Krajči.

Both books were also being talked about on Sunday (09/11/2014 at 3 pm) after the mayor of Kostoľany Anton Medvec put a garland on the memorial plaque on the native home of Mária Kočanová. Out of the original trilogy, which the author regarded as her life-time work, there is only one manuscript available in the museum of national history in Prešov. By its publication after 70 years something, which may have already been considered forgotten, may be resurrected.
