Literary Club Meeting in April

On April 29 at 6 pm Literary Club of the National Library of the Udmurt Republic is inviting to celebrate the forthcoming 75th anniversary of Joseph Brodsky.

Joseph Aleksandrovich Brodsky (24 May 1940, Leningrad – 28 January 1996, New York) – was a Russian poet, prose writer, essayist and translator. He became famous in 1960s, when his poems started to be published abroad. At that same time Brodsky was still being treated as persona non grata in the USSR (in 1964 he was charged with social parasitism, in 1972 – forced to emigrate from the Soviet Union). Until 1990 most of the poet’s works circulated in secret or appeared outside the Soviet Union, despite Brodsky won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1987.


This Literary Club meeting, organized by the National Library of the Udmurt Republic together with the Faculty of Philology of the Udmurt State University, will be held in an unusual setting – near the monument to Pushkin – and will feature open air readings of Brodsky’s poems by students, librarians and guests.


All are welcome to join.
