Join Anatoly Liberman as he reads from great authors who have been rarely or never translated into English. Modeled on John Gielgud’s one-man show, The Ages of Man, the reading features the progress of love from its timid beginning, through its pangs of jealousy — a sweet remembrance of former joys and love after death. Bring your Valentine!
