Alexandra Petrova talk (in Russian) “The Quadratura of Myth; or Thirty White Piglets on the Road of Fate”

Wednesday, February 14th at 4:30pm in 245 East Pyne

Rome-based Russian-language poet and prose writer Alexandra Petrova discusses her recent novel, Appendix, which explores the ins and outs of migration / immigration / emigre existence against the background of the Eternal City — her adopted home and that of millions of immigrants stretching from yesterday’s Libyan refugees to luminaries of the ancient world.
