“I Wrote and Waited”: Aleksandr Solzhentsyn’s Life in Cavendish, Vermont
November 15, 2018
University Heights South at UVM, Room 133
Aleksander Solzhenitsyn was a Nobel Prize-winning Soviet dissident author who moved to Cavendish, Vermont, after his exile from the Soviet Union. He and his family became part of community life in the small town, which guarded his privacy fiercely. Margo Caulfield of the Cavendish Historical Society will share what his life was like and the impact he had on the community. She will also speak about the work being done to commemorate his life in his centennial year.
The Vermont Historical Society (VHS) is excited to partner with the Cavendish Historical Society (CHS) and the University of Vermont (UVM) to celebrate the life and work of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in honor of his 100th birthday. Their project, “Solzhenitsyn at 100,” is supported by a VHC grant.
