The Lazarus Project by Aleksandar Hemon

Date and Time: September 29, 2022, 1:00 PM MT

Location: Goodland Public Library, 812 Broadway Ave, Goodland
(view on google maps)

From the TALK series, The Exile's Place
Discussion led by Deborah Peterson.

Bosnian Vladimir Brik, like Hemon himself, is caught in exile in Chicago by the wars that broke up Yugoslavia. Obsessed with Lazarus Averbach, an immigrant who had fled Moldavian pogroms in the early twentieth century only to be gunned down by Chicago police as a presumed anarchist, Brik returns to Eastern Europe to explore the roots of the earlier tragedy. The parallels illuminate the recurrent motifs of exile and the sufferings of Central Europeans through the bloody history of the twentieth century.
