The article highlights the traveling exhibition Many-Booked America which has moved from city to city in the Soviet Union to familiarize the citizens with life in the U.S. Sponsored by the U.S. Information Agency and the USSR Committee for Publishing, Printing and the Book Trade, the exhibition is sibling to The USSR: Glasnost and Perestroika exhibition that is traveling in the U.S. The exhibition is divided into sections including science and technology, economics and business, fiction, children's books and the arts. A youth leader, Nikolai Kurdyumov, missed the appearance of material on youth culture while geologist Boris Fursenko was interested in books on family budgeting. Sponsors of the shows of the two countries believe that the exchange of exhibitions is a prologue to a more thorough and profound acquaintance with each other's intellectual and cultural achievements.
