Ukrainians in Fiction and History

To better understand the history and the resilient spirit of Ukrainians, join a three part discussion this summer.  The series, supported by a Vermont Humanities grant, will begin with two  discussions of novels, Sweet Daruysa and Grey Bees, led by scholar Suzanne Brown on Monday, June 27 and July 25 at 4:30 pm.  It will conclude in early August with a  conversation with Natalia May who will provide information on her own work, as a Russian Vermonter, helping Ukrainian refugees and citizens.

The discussions will be held in hybrid form; participants may request an in-person seat or a Zoom link. Copies of the books may be borrowed.  Many additional resources are available and the discussions will include background videos.  Sunflowers inside and out (and seed packets to take home) indicate support.  The books and conversations will, we hope, help to sort the dreadful, ongoing news, and offer ways to be inspired to support ongoing efforts.
