Talk with Tamara Horikha Zernya on her novel 'Dotsya' about the war in Ukraine's east.
In 2014, Horikha Zernya started volunteering to support Ukrainian soldiers at the frontline. Moved by her experience and filled with urgency to share the stories of the people she met in the Donbas, Horikha Zernya began writing her debut novel, 'Dotsya' (Daughter). Horikha Zernya has given a literary voice to the conflict and her novel was the winner of the BBC Ukrainian Book of the Year award in 2019.
At this online event Tamara Horikha Zernya will be in conversation with Svitlana Pyrkalo, Trustee of Ukrainian Institute London and EBRD cultural advisor. At the beginning of the event, BBC News Ukraine Editor Marta Shokalo will also give a brief presentation about the new BBC Ukrainian Book of the Year award coming up this year.
This event will be held in Ukrainian. For those who do not speak Ukrainian, we will have simultaneous translation into English via a separate audio channel on Zoom.
We suggest a voluntary donation of £5 for those able to support Ukrainian Institute London, a UK charity dedicated to broadening knowledge about Ukraine in Britain. Donations can be made via JustGiving: https://www.justgiving.com/ukrainianinstitutelondon
