When: Wednesday, October 21
Time: 7:00 pm
Where: Stanley Milner Library Theatre
Host: Myrl Coulter
What: Rosemary Sullivan with host Myrl Coulter present Stalin’s Daughter: The Extraordinary and Tumultuous Life of Svetlana Alliluyeva. With access to KGB, CIA, and Soviet government archives, as well as the close cooperation of her subject’s daughter, Sullivan pieces together Svetlana Alliluyeva’s incredible life. Epic in scope, it’s a revolutionary biography of a woman doomed to be a political prisoner of her father’s name. Sullivan explores a complicated character in her broader context without losing sight of her powerfully human story, and in the process opens a closed, brutal world that continues to fascinate.
