Alexander Vvdensky’s An Invitation for Me to Think: Reading and Discussion at NYU Humanities Initiative

On April 11th at 6pm, an all-star line-up of Richard Sieburth, Michael Kunichika, Eugene Ostashevsky, and Matvei Yankelevich will convene at NYU Humanities Initiative to celebrate the publication of Alexander Vvedensky’s An Invitation For Me to Think (translated by Eugene Ostashevsky, with additional translations by Matvei Yankelevich). The evening will include a conversation on the “end of the avant-garde.” A reception will follow.

An Invitation For Me to Think, with poems selected by Eugene Ostashevsky, is the first of two volumes in the new NYRB Poets series, and the first book of Vvedensky’s to appear in English.
