Literary reading and launch of book
From point A
by Tatiana Bonch-Osmolovskaya, Nora Krouk, Lena Ostrovskaya, Vsevolod Vlaskine

NSW Writer Centre (Garry Owen House, Callan Park, Balmain Rd, Rozelle)
18 August, 4pm


This book is a collection of poems by four Russian authors living in Australia. Far from being limited to Australian motifs, they travel, return back to Russia, imaginary and real, reflect on themselves and others, reminisce and recollect… Their vastly different lives, experiences, and voices are entwined by the Russian language on the smallest continent far away from their motherland.






The book is now available on Amazon.

Irina Kozyrevich conducted the reading in NSW Writer Centre (Rozelle).


The authors answered questions about their creative process, their understanding of poetry, the need to write in Russian being so far and so long away from the motherland, and their plans for the future.
