Chris Buck was assigned to serve in West Berlin as a Russian linguist during his time in the Army. He then studied at the Free University of Berlin and Yale University, earning a doctorate in Russian literature. He has traveled extensively to the Soviet Union, including St. Petersburg and Moscow. He has taught Russian and German at the University of Minnesota and at Oberlin College.
He read A Gentleman in Moscow and loved the book (of course.) Join us, as he reviews what life was like in Russia during the decades that Count Rostov was under house arrest in the lovely Metropol Hotel. You will learn a lot. Reservations recommended.
