Event Navigation

‘Our May Café will focus on the writers and artists caught up in the chaos of the Russian Revolution and subsequent Civil War. Many writers went on to settle in Paris, Berlin and elsewhere and forged new lives in exile. We’ll explore the wonderful Nadezhda Teffi, the hugely popular and funny story writer and author of Pushkin Press’ Memories, From Moscow to the Black Sea’ and stories by the more famous émigré writers, Vladimir Nabokov and Ivan Bunin with speakers and readers including actress Harriet Walter; academics and writers Robert Chandler, Bryan Karetnyk, and Peter Pomeranzev; and Dash artistic director Josephine Burton.’ (DA)
