DR. MOTYL IN WINNIPEG!
Alexander J. Motyl, Sweet Snow, A novel of the Ukrainian Famine of 1933
Saturday,October 5, 2013 at 3:30pm
You may be familiar with Alexander J. Motyl as an articulate blogger on issues related to Ukraine and its government. But Dr. Motyl is not just a blogger. He is an eminent professor, writer and artist. He has a PhD in political science and taught at Columbia University, Lehigh University, Harvard, and most recently, is teaching at Rutgers University-Newark.
It’s his literary career that brings him to Oseredok. Alexander Motyl’s newest novel Sweet Snow features a German nobleman from Berlin, a Jewish communist from New York, a Polish diplomat from Lwow, and a Ukrainian nationalist from Vienna wandering Ukraine in the winter of 1933, struggling to survive amidst the horror of the Famine-Genocide while attempting to evade the Soviet secret police.
Sweet Snow is now available at Oseredok Boutique.
