On April 6, 2023 WSU Libraries, hosted Lost Horse Press publisher, Christine Lysnewycz Holbert, for an afternoon of Ukrainian poetry, music and song. The event brought together members of the Ukrainian community at WSU, members of the local Ukrainian community on the Palouse, and WSU faculty and staff to celebrate the beauty and resilience of the Ukrainian culture and people.
As dual-language project, the Contemporary Ukrainian Poetry Series from Lost Horse Press brings the voices of Ukrainian poets to an English-speaking audience. Founded in 2017 by Christine Lysnewycz Holbert and series editor Grace Mahoney, the series brings Ukraine’s poetry to an English-speaking audience, while allowing the reader to also see the poems in their original Ukrainian. As American cities welcome Ukrainian refugees fleeing the invasion, dual-language books provide an important tool for the preservation of Ukrainian literary culture as Ukrainians acclimate to a life in the English diaspora. WSU Press is a distributor for Lost Horse Press.
