cordially invites you to the presentation of

Woman in Exile – My Life in Kazakhstan
by Juliana Starosolska

Juliana Starosolska was taken by the Stalinists from her parents’ home in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv and deported in a sealed boxcar to a distant and primitive outpost in Siberian Kazakhstan. In Woman in Exile (first published in 1969 in Ukrainian as Rozkazhu Vam Pro Kazakhstan), she records her ordeals in a series of vignettes that capture the horrific, the humane, and even the occasionally humorous aspects of her experience.

Book will be presented by the translator Marie Ulanowicz.

Book will be available for purchase during the event.
