Slavko Goldstein and Charles Simic in Conversation, Barnes & Noble, Upper West Side At 7pm on November 12, Poet and frequent New York Review contributor Charles Simic, who has written the introduction to 1941, will join Goldstein for a conversation about this important new book. Of 1941, Simic writes, “It deserves attention because it explains, perhaps better than any book I know of, how different ethnic groups, who lived side by side in peace for centuries, were made to turn against one another and become each other’s executioners in that unhappy country.” For more information, visit the Barnes & Noble website.
