The New Hampshire Institute of Politics is pleased to offer a special program to mark the one-year anniversary of the start of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. The program features an exhibition of war posters by contemporary Ukrainian illustrators, living and working in Ukraine, sometimes, with no power, water, cell signal, or Internet connection.

Lada Kolomiyers, Veronika Yadukha, and Hanna Leliv, three scholars and translators currently at Dartmouth College, will present a selection of translations they have been working on over the past year. The poetry reading will be performed to the music accompaniment by Joe Deleault and Don Davis.
