RUSSIAN SALON
The evening will begin with complimentary Russian hors d’oevres (zakuski – Russian for an excuse to drink vodka). Joining me will be David Temple, a classical guitarist who has performed throughout the country as a soloist, an accompanist and an ensemble player. He will play Russian music to create the St. Petersburg Russian salon atmosphere. Nina Shengold, author of the novel, Clearcut, and a founding member of Actors and Writers, will read an original piece with a Russian flair. Laura Shaine Cunningham, author of two acclaimed memoirs, Sleeping Arrangements and A Place in the Country, will read from her new memoir entitled Forbidden Russia. I will read from my recently published memoir, DP Displaced Person which will be available for sale at the Café. A book signing will close the evening.
