Historical parallels abound in Sana Krasikov’s new novel, The Patriots, about three generations of an American family who emigrate in reverse from the US to Russia. Reviewers have called the book alarmingly relevant to our political moment. Krasikov will talk about her efforts to decode the vernacular of autocracy, and how writing the story of Americans lost in Russia felt uncomfortably close to home.
Please join us for a talk with Yuri Leving (Dalhousie University, Canada).
Joseph Brodsky was a lucky man: among the glut of talents given him was the gift of visual art as well. The Nobel Laureate never had lessons in drawing, but his sketches are distinguished by the sparseness of the malleable line, their sharp composition, and the ability to convey a mood. Professor Yuri Leving presents on his research, based on over a 300 unpublished drawings by Brodsky from different periods and varying styles and techniques.
