"Encounter: The Ukrainian-Jewish Literary Prize™" and Other Recent Developments in Ukrainian Literature
Please join the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute and the Ukrainian Jewish Encounter (UJE) for a discussion with writers Vasyl Makhno and Andrey Kurkov.

Vasyl Makhno’s novel Vichnyi Kalendar (The Eternal Calendar, 2019) received the 2020 "Encounter: The Ukrainian-Jewish Literary Prize™", which is sponsored by the Ukrainian Jewish Encounter with the support of the NGO Publishers Forum (Lviv, Ukraine). Makhno and fellow writer Andrey Kurkov (who served as the head of the jury for the 2020 prize) will discuss the “Encounter” prize and other important recent developments in contemporary Ukrainian literature. The event will include opening remarks from Natalia A. Feduschak, UJE’s communications director and a reading by Makhno, in Ukrainian, of an excerpt from his award-wining novel. Dr. Mark Andryczyk will read an English-language translation of the excerpt and will moderate the discussion.
