CLUB 81 was a professional creative union of writers. It was established at the end of 1981 on the initiative of I. A. Admatsky, B. I. Ivanov and Y. V. Novikov by authority of the Administration of the Committee for State Security and the Leningrad Department of the Union of Writers of the USSR. It united approximately 70 people - representatives of independent culture, authors of Samizdat (M. Y. Berg, A. T. Dragomoshchenko, B. I. Dyshlenko, V. B. Krivulin, O. A. Okhapkin, S. G. Stratanovsky, E. A. Schwarz, E. M. Schneiderman et al.). It included sections of prose, poetry, criticism, translation, music (S. A. Kurekhin, B. B. Grebenshchikov) and the theatre studio of E. G. Goroshevsky (it was situated on 3 Chernyshevskogo Avenue). It arranged literary readings, conferences, symposiums and musical concerts at the apartment of the Literary Memorial Museum of F. M. Dostoevsky, from the middle of 1982 - at its own apartment on 5 Peter Lavrova Street (today Furshtatskaya Street). The publication of the literary collection Circle - the first officially published collection by authors of Samizdat - was an important achievement of the activity of the club (Leningrad, 1985). The First All-Russian conference of representatives of independent press was held in the club in 1987. Its activity stopped at the end of 1988.
