Critical Conversation: Ukraine: National Crisis with a Global Impact
September 24 at 7pm
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.
The ongoing war in Ukraine has highlighted our global interconnectivity and dependency on particular nations to supply resources, from gas to grain, to Europe, North America and Africa. The conflict has also changed the rules on what is possible, creating tensions in Taiwan, the Middle East and the Balkans. Is the conflict about growing the impact of an ideology or growing control of global supplies? Join our discussion with a panel including Timothy Frye, author of Weak Strongman: The Limits of Power in Putin’s Russia, Ivan Baidak and Ashleigh Stewart.
Moderated by Ksenya Kiebuzinski.
