Award-winning author and assistant professor at the University of Missouri, Julija Šukys, will read from her 2017 book, Siberian Exile, which weaves together two narratives: the story of Ona, noble exile and innocent victim, and that of Anthony, accused war criminal. The book examines the stories that communities tell themselves, and considers what happens when the stories we’ve been told all our lives suddenly and irrevocably change, and how forgiveness or grace operate across generations and across the barriers of life and death.

About the author: Julija Šukys (PhD, U Toronto) is the author of three books, most recently Siberian Exile: Blood, War, and a Granddaughter’s Reckoning and Epistolophilia: Writing the Life of Ona Šimait?. Epistolophilia won the 2013 Canadian Jewish Book Award for Holocaust Literature. Her essays have appeared in the Tusculum Review, Queen’s Quarterly, Passages North, and elsewhere.
