Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia. Thank you for listening in.
Elisabeth van der Meer from the extraordinary blog, A Russian Affair, has joined me from the far distance of 7,514 km or 4,669 miles. Yes, I am thrilled to report that once again, we are connecting Finland and Canada via Russian Literature. Elisabeth has come back to discuss the life and work of the brilliant writer, Ivan Turgenev, and the complicated relationships that existed between the great Russian writers.
So, put the kettle on and add to this exciting conversation. I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Thank you for joining Elisabeth and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. And a special thank you to Elisabeth for sharing your love of Russian literature. I am truly grateful for your willingness to come back and speak about Ivan Turgenev.
I would highly recommend Elisabeth’s blog “A Russian Affair” which is marvelously entertaining and an invaluable resource for understanding the complexities of Russian Literature. Stay tune for more from Elisabeth. She will be back to discuss – I will only give you a hint! Something about a dual.
One last thought comes from Ivan Turgenev, “If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin.”
Until next time, dear friends, safe travels wherever your adventures take you.
