Enjoy an evening with Serhiy Zhadan, one of the key voices in contemporary Ukrainian literature: his poetry and novels have enjoyed popularity both at home and abroad. Writing is just one of his many interests, which also include singing in a band, translating poetry and organizing literary festivals. Zhadan’s poetry, novels, and short stories have been translated into over a dozen languages. In 2013, he helped lead the Euromaidan demonstrations in Kharkiv, and in 2014, he was assaulted outside the administration building in Kharkiv, an incident that gained notoriety around the world, including a feature article in the New Yorker.
