Shevchenko, whom we don’t know

Dear fans of literature! We are glad to inform you that on 13 April at 7-8 pm we will hold the next Evening of the Ukrainian Literature.  During the Holy Week, on Maundy Thursday, we speak about the life and creativity of Taras Shevchenko. In April 1861, Mykhaylo Lazarevskiy managed to receive a permission to rebury his friend Taras Shevchenko in Ukraine.  This is how the last path of Shevchenko coming back home started.  But what we know about Shevchenko?  How many times he fall in love? Did he have any children? Who bought him out of slavery? Whose grand … grand-mother  of the modern Ukrainian writers was Oksana Kovalenko – teenage love of Shevchenko? What was the real cause of his death?

We are looking forward to seeing you at the evening at the address: Rue du Commerce, 5, 1204, Genève, COOP Restaurant Fusterie (top floor)! All who want can read the poems and excerpts of Shevchenko’s masterpieces.
