Ukrainian Night: An Intimate History of Revolution

Where: D.G. Wills Books, 7461 Girard Avenue, San Diego | get directions

Cost: Free

Age limit: All ages

Historian Marci Shore will read from and discuss her timely new book, a vivid and intimate account of the Ukrainian Revolution, the rare moment when the political became the existential. What is worth dying for? While the world watched the uprising on the Maidan as an episode in geopolitics, those in Ukraine during the extraordinary winter of 2013–14 lived the revolution as an existential transformation: the blurring of night and day, the loss of a sense of time, the sudden disappearance of fear, the imperative to make choices. Marci Shore evokes the human face of the Ukrainian Revolution.
