Thursday, April 27th at 6:30 PM OR Friday, April 28th at 6:30 PM (Firm Date TBA): An Evening with M.T. Anderson reading from his book: Symphony for the City of the Dead: Dmitri Shostakovich and the Siege of Leningrad

An awarding winning novelist, Anderson has written a book which is a detailed and deeply human telling of the horrors endured by Russian citizens as the great city of St. Petersburg was decimated first by national politics then foreign aggression. Dmitri Shostakovich found the strength to keep creating, eventually composing his great 7th Symphony of 1941. This piece was a beacon of hope to his countrymen and eventually helped marshal aid from the West. Anderson will read from his book followed by a discussion.
