Winterkill: a Book Launch Event with Marsha Skrypuch - This event has already occurred

Event Details:

Join us to celebrate the launch of Winterkill, a timely reminder that it has been less than a century since another catastrophic time in Ukrainian history. Known as the Holodomor, or death by starvation, Ukraine’s Famine-Genocide in the 1930s was deliberately caused by the Soviets to erase the Ukrainian people and culture.

Marsha brings this deeply resonant point in history to life in a story about unity, perseverance, and a people’s determination to overcome – told from the perspective of a 12 year old boy. Come hear the story behind Nyl and Alice, two young Ukrainians with a plan to save themselves and their community against overwhelming odds.
