Pre-Launch Reading from “The God of Freedom” with Yulia Musakovska

Please join the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute for a pre-Launch Reading from “The God of Freedom” and Conversation with Yuliya Musakovska. Moderated by Mark Andryczyk.

Yuliya Musakovska celebrates the upcoming release of her poetry collection, The God of Freedom, in English translation from Arrowsmith Press. Joining her will be her translator Olena Jennings. The event will feature a reading in both Ukrainian and English and a talk about the wartime reality of Ukraine under the Russian invasion and the role of cultural activism in the Ukrainian resistance. Yuliya and Olena will also speak about their translation process.

Published in Ukraine in 2021, The God of Freedom reflects on many events of Russia’s aggressive war against Ukraine that began in 2014 before taking its full-scale form in 2022. The collection was shortlisted for the Lviv UNESCO City of Literature Prize and included in the top eight  nominees for the Taras Shevchenko National Prize, Ukraine’s most prestigious literary award. Poems from the collection have been translated into many languages and published in The Southern ReviewAGNITupelo Quarterly, NELLEThe Common, and other journals and anthologies.
