Each day of the Festival, authors and industry experts will come together for candid, live conversations to examine a new facet of the culture and politics that shape the world around us and the books we read.

We looked on with horror, distress and confusion as Russia defied international law and national sovereignty to invade Ukraine in early 2022. As the conflict painfully continues, many of us continue to ask why, and for what result? Is it an unprompted act of dictatorial ego or part of a long-term strategy for global change? Join our panel to discuss what happened and where we go next, including award-winning journalist Jessikka Aro, author of Putin’s Trolls: On the Frontlines of Russia’s Information War Against the World, Timothy Frye, author of Weak Strongman: The Limits of Power in Putin’s Russia and Anna Shternshis.

Moderated by Jeff Semple.
