Russian Tales: San Francisco Reading
January 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
LGBTQ Pride Readings presents three authors of new Russian novels: Arthur J. Levy (Coda: A Tale of Tchaikovsky’s Secret Love), Wayne Goodman (Vanya Says “Go!”), and Michael Aleynikov (Ivan and Misha), Coda spins a tale of a secret encoded in music by Tchaikovsky, discovered in a present-day antique shop in New York City. Vanya Says “Go!” is a retelling and expansion of Mikhail Kuskin’s Wings, the first known Gay Russian novel, originally published in 1906. Ivan and Misha tells the story of twins and their father, Russian-speaking emigres from Ukraine to contemporary New York. All three novels expand the idea of what a Russian novel is. This is a free event with complimentary Russian refreshments and Russian door prizes for promptness.
