Join KLRU, CREEES faculty, and our special guest, author Andrei Gelasimov, for a sneak peek and conversation of the PBS documentary, Russia's Open Book: Writing in the Age of Putin. Gelasimov as well as other noted CREEES faculty will discuss the topics and authors covered in the documentary to open up the conversation of contemporary Russian writing. Refreshments and hors d'oeuvres will also be served in the lobby after the screening/panel discussion.
 
Andrei Gelasimov studied foreign languages at Yakutsk State University and directing at the Moscow Theater Institute. He became an overnight literary sensation in Russia in 2001 when his story “A Tender Age,” which he published online, won critical acclaim as best debut and went on to garner the Apollon-Grigoriev and the Booker Student Prizes, as well as a nomination for the Belkin Prize. Thirst is Gelasimov's first book published in English. His novel The Gods of the Steppes, forthcoming from AmazonCrossing in 2012, won the 2009 Russian National Bestseller literary award.
