The New Haven Public Library will host Writers Live! Anatole Konstantin discussing his recent memoir, A Red Boyhood: Growing Up Under Stalin, on Thursday, Mar. 5, 6-7pm.
Konstantin’s book begins in a little town in the Ukraine on the night of April 17, 1938, when his father was taken away by the Soviet secret police and never seen again. The author's recollections shimmer with small personal details against the global and political upheavals that roiled his childhood. He re-creates the daily trials of people trapped under the repressive Stalinist regime, as well as the horrific struggles of post-War refugees.
After the War, Konstantin graduated from the Technical University of Munich and emigrated to the United States, where he studied engineering at Columbia University, later founding PDC International Corporation. Mr. Konstantin lives in Connecticut.
There is no charge for this program, which takes place at the Downtown Branch, 133 Elm St., and free parking is available. Atticus Bookstore Café will provide coffee and books for sale and signing. Please register at www.redboyhood.eventbrite.com or call the library at 946-8835.
