1219 International Affairs Building, Columbia University

The Polish-Ukrainian-Russian writer Igor Klekh will read from his book of short stories "A Land the Size of the Binoculars," published last year by Northwestern University Press.

Klekh's stories center on what is often called the crossroads of Central Europe, the point where Polish, Ukrainian, Austrian, Jewish, Czech, Slovakian, and Russian traditions meet, interact and produce a unique culture masterfully reflected in Klekh's style.

The event is co-sponsored by the Harriman Institute, the Ukrainian Studies Program, and the East Central European Center's Polish Studies Program.

The event is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome.
