LocationMoody 104, Moody Memorial Library
DescriptionBorn and educated in Odessa (Ukraine), poet Irina Ratushinskaya spent 4 years in her 30s in a Soviet prison camp. Her crime: penning “dangerous” poetry. Nevertheless, she continued scratching poems on bars of soap that even today offer hope to the people of her native land. Oxford and London School of Economics graduate Xenia Dennen, Chair of the Keston Institute in the United Kingdom and a Soviet expert, will offer the Keston Spring Lecture remembering the poet’s "triumph of the Spirit" on the anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine. Refreshments and conversation will follow.
