Ukraine Connections to Spokane - Eli Francovich

Think what's happening in Ukraine doesn't mean anything here in Spokane? Think again. There are over 30,000 Ukrainian-Americans in Spokane County. Spokesman-Review reporter Eli Francovich returns from assignment in Ukraine to discuss what he saw, and share stories and photographs that didn't make the paper. Adding another Spokane connection to the evening will be Christine Lysnewycz Holbert. Ukrainian literature wasn’t on American readers’ minds at all, but the war changed all of that. Holbert founded Lost Horse Press in 1998 and in 2017 as a tribute to her ancestors, established the Lost Horse Press Contemporary Ukrainian Poetry Series, which is edited by Grace Mahoney. There are now 10 books in the series, and Natalka Bilotserkivets’ "Eccentric Days of Hope & Sorrow," translated by Ali Kinsella and Dzvinia Orlowsky, has been short-listed for the Griffin Prize for Poetry.
