Renowned Ethiopian authors, poets, and artists attended a special event at the National Theatre for an honorable cause. The event, titled Metsehaf Le’Hilina, was organized to collect books whether new or old from attending guests and other groups. The collected books will be donated to Ethiopian prisons so that prisoners will get the chance to read and rebuild their lives. The event also included different artistic presentations from the attending guests.
