April 25th at 4 p.m., at the Yale Bookstore (Barnes & Noble) on Broadway 
in New Haven. 

From 4 to 4:30 p.m., a Ukrainian-American author, Irena Zabytko will be signing copies of her newly released novel, "The Sky Unwashed". The novel has received excellent reviews from Library Journal & Kirkus Reviews & Publishers' Weekly.  This is a unique opportunity to support a mainstream writer who paints a sympathetic picture of Ukraine for a mainstream, American audience.  ALSO, Yale Bookstore has taken a risk in promoting this book during Reading Week.

Ms. Zabytko has been nominated for Barnes & Noble's "Discover Great New Writers Series", and this is a great honor for a Ukrainian writer in whom all of us should rejoice.

The Ukrainian language students are organizing a play Pippi Longstocking (Peppi Dovha Panchokha) skit for the yearly departmental slam.  Our co-president, Adrian, has agreed to be none other than Pippi.  (That's real security with masculinity.)  There will be cameo appearances of Taras Shevchenko, Taras Bulba, Lesia Ukrainka.  Maybe Ivan Vysens'kyj. Singing.  Horilka (stage horilka).  Dancing.  A Horse.  If you want to get involved, there will be mandatory rehearsals.  We won Grand Prize last year, so Ukrainian has to get it again.  Please email if you want to get involved.

St. Michael’s Church Hall, 
563 George street, new Haven, CT
Kotlyarevsky's Eneyida Studio "Arabesques" from Kharkiv, Ukraine

Prof. Halyna Hryn is offering to drive anyone that would like to go out to the Eneyida performance. 

Eneyida is one of the most outstanding and most original products of the current Ukrainian literature. It is a mock heroic poem based on the famous "Aeneyid" by the Roman poet Vergilius. But here Trojans become Kozaks, "Aeneas" is Enei, while Greek gods from Mt. Olympus appear as Ukrainian gentry.

General Admission is $10. Yale students free with ID. 
For further information, please call 203-407-0261.

For the past several years they have been working to create a new musical language for their instrument which combines contemporary influences from minimalism to free improvisation with rhythms, textures, and modes drawn from ancient epic songs. Their repertoire consists almost exclusively of original compositions and improvisational pieces that develop bandura ensemble sound in radically new directions.

The Experimental Bandura Trio will be also performing at the following locations this month:

Toronto, ON
We will be participating in the "Bandura Festival 2000" presented by the Canadian Bandura Foundation.

As of March 1st, the Children of Chornobyl Relief Fund will be opening its new office in New Haven on the corner of Whalley Avenue and Maplewood Road.  (A very generous American businessman has donated the office space to us.)  We are preparing our 25th airlift to Ukraine, with deliveries planned for Bila Tserkva, Rivne, Slavutych and other children's hospitals.  We are looking for volunteers who might be willing to work in the office, even for a few hours once a week, especially during the summer months and next fall. Please contact me (Alex Kuzma) if you are interested in learning more about this exciting development, or if you think you would like to volunteer.  We welcome your feedback and your participation.
