Dear patrons!

We’re entering a new era in our life! In September, our beloved American Center will begin renovations, which promise amazing opportunities for you. Here’s a peek at what to expect:

✓ A new Makerspace with 3-D printer and other fantastic toys!
✓ Contemporary and hip furniture!
✓ New expanded work stations!
✓ And much, much more!

Are you excited yet? We sure are. But fret not! During our renovations, we will still be conducting events with amazing guests and speakers, clubs and other activities. (And do we have a great program for you this fall!) These events may take place in a different hall, but in the same library building, thanks to the generosity of the Library of Foreign Literature. Please stay tuned to our websites and announcements for more information.

We thank you for your patience during these renovations and greatly look forward to sharing the new us with the new you!

    Special Lecture with Russian TV Personality Yelena Khanga
    February 11, 2008

    Yelena Khanga was born and raised in the USSR, in Moscow, and went to the United States in 1990 to write (with Susan Jacoby) Soul to Soul: The Story of a Black Russian American Family: 1865-1992. Khanga now divides her time between New York City and Moscow. The daughter of Abdullah Kassim (one time vice-president of Zanzibar) and Lily (a historian and educator; maiden name, Golden) Khanga, is of African, Russian and Polish Jewish descent, the great-granddaughter of a former Mississippi slave and a Polish rabbi. Her American maternal grandmother, of Polish Jewish descent, was a Russian-English translator for a Soviet news agency. Yelena Khanga was the moderator of the Russian television talk show The Domino Effect. She was also a performer with a comedy group in Brighton Beach called Kanotye.
