Reading: Nikolayev and Kapovich for Harvard Review

Philip Nikolayev and Katia Kapovich will read from their current work at the Harvard Advocate on Thursday, November 29th, at 7:30 p.m. This free and public event will take place at 21 South Street in Harvard Square, Cambridge.

Katia Kapovich hails from Soviet Moldova. Her membership in a samizdat dissident group precluded publication of her writing in the USSR. She worked on archeological digs, gauged petroleum tanks, smuggled sheepskins, then emigrated, settling in the US in 1992. The author of six Russian collections and two volumes of English verse, Gogol in Rome (Salt, 2004) and Cossacks and Bandits (Salt, 2007), she lives in Boston and co-edits FULCRUM: an annual of poetry and aesthetics.

Philip Nikolayev, born in Moscow in 1966 and raised in Russia and Moldova, grew up equally fluent in English and Russian. On relocating to the US in 1990 to attend Harvard he has written primarily in English. His poetry is published internationally. Nikolayev's four collections of poems include Letters from Aldenderry (Salt, 2006) and Monkey Time, winner of the 2001 Verse Prize. He lives in Boston and co-edits FULCRUM: an annual of poetry and aesthetics.

DIRECTIONS: Walk down Dunster Street from Holyoke Center, turn right into South Street. The Advocate is a two-story wood-frame house at 21 South Street.
