Commemorating the Centenary of 1917

An afternoon with historian and humorist Jennifer Eremeeva

Members $30, Non-members $40

This year marks the centenary of the October Revolution of 1917–a monumental event that profoundly shaped the present geopolitical reality.
Humorist and historian Jennifer Eremeeva will reflect on the cultural and political significance of the Revolution over the past century; explore why Russia’s leaders are ignoring this significant anniversary; and theorize what can be gleaned from this about Russia’s political future. The talk will conclude with a lively Q&A.
A reception featuring a signature cocktail and zakuska (Russian hors d’oeuvres) created by Eremeeva—who is also a food writer and curator—will follow the talk. Ms. Eremeeva will be signing her books, Lenin Lives Next Door: Marriage, Martinis and Mayhem in Moscow and Have Personality Disorder, Will Rule Russia, which will be available for purchase.
