Book Launch featuring:

Prometheus: A Tale of the Human Quest for Enlightenment by Oles Berdnyk

Childhood friends – a beautiful girl of precocious intelligence, and her warrior-protector travel from ancient Alexandria to classical Athens seeking education. Berdnyk imagines a historical character Hypatia, a philosopher in the mid-4th to early 5th century AD, and her companion Isidore, traveling through ancient Greece, India and North Africa, encountering princes, priests, gurus and ascetics.  We are immersed in a dazzling array of cultures and world views as we walk with them.

Maria: A Chronicle of a Life by Ulas Samchuk

A gripping story about a village woman’s loves, losses, and daily toil, from the emancipation of serfs in 1861 to one of the most tragic periods in human history – the 1932-33 Holodomor, or Famine-Genocide.

Translated into English by Dr. Roma Franko, recipient of the Luckyj Ukrainian Literature Translation Prize
