Russian Émigré Literature: The Dialog of Generations in New York City

Literary historian, Radio Liberty broadcaster, and TV personality Ivan Tolstoy, will discuss  the main achievements and contributions of  Russian-émigré writers, poets, and journalists of the 20th and 21st centuries.  He will be joined in a roundtable discussion by: 

  • Alexander Genis, Russian-American writer and literary critic
  • Nina Alovert, Photographer, novelist, and ballet critic
  •  Alexander Delphinov, Berlin-based poet
  • Grigorii Arosev, Writer, founder of BERLIN.BEREGA literary magazine

Tolstoy will focus on the phenomenon of “Waves”—the generations of  cultural migration throughout both centuries—and try to define what drives immigrant literature today.

This event is presented in cooperation with The New York Public Library as part of the 15th Annual Russian Heritage Month, produced by the Russian American Foundation in cooperation with the New York Post.
