THE BLACK RUSSIAN with Yale Professor and author Vladimir Alexandrov
YCLA and Princeton Club of SoCal cosponsored event! Another opportunity to see Professor Alexandrov if you can't make the YBAA and Yale Blue Reads event!

"The Black Russian" with Prof. Vladimir Alexandrov *79

In his lifetime, Frederick Bruce Thomas accomplished what would take most of us several lifetimes to achieve. The son of an American slave, Thomas invented and reinvented himself several times on foreign soil. He was a self-made man in an era of conformity, an entrepreneur before the term was common. 

You have the exclusive opportunity to meet Thomas’ biographer,Vladimir Alexandrov *79, author of The Black Russian. Dr. Alexandrov will appear at a book talk and signing near West LA the evening of Thursday, Oct. 24th.

The Black Russian has received glowing reviews and Booklist named it one of the top ten biographies of the year. It is a seminal work that breathes life into the legend of an extraordinary man – a millionaire impresario in pre-revolutionary Moscow and “The Sultan of Jazz” in Constantinople. 

Cost: $25 

When: Thursday, October 24, 6:30-9:30pm

A social hour with wine, cheese and sandwiches precedes Dr. Alexandrov’s talk. Address and directions will be given when reservations are confirmed.   

Vladimir Alexandrov *79Dr. Alexandrov received his Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at Princeton and is the B.E. Bensinger Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Yale.
