Museum of Russian Icons announce Framing Cultures series: Author, Historian and Humorist Jennifer Eremeeva

. July 19, 2017

This year marks the centenary of the October Revolution of 1917–a monumental event that profoundly shaped the present geopolitical reality. Ms. 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.
