Moscow poet Maria Stepanova, a winner of Russia’s top literary prize, will give a reading on Sunday, April 1 at 7pm in the Amherst Center for Russian Culture. She will read her original poetry along with new English translations. Stepanova is one of the most visible figures in post-Soviet culture, a founder and editor of today’s most influential online journal. She is one of the most important poets working today, addressing contemporary themes through skillfully distorted forms and language.
The reading will be followed by a question-and-answer session in English.
This event is sponsored by the Amherst Center for Russian Culture, the Russian Department and the Lurcy Lecture Fund.
