We are bringing you a virtual book presentation as part of the Books at the Institute Series. From Chernobyl with Love by Katya Cengel, published by Potomac Books, is a fascinating story of a young American journalist set on exploring the newly-independent countries of Latvia and Ukraine.
“Katya Cengel’s From Chernobyl with Love is an engaging memoir of a Western newspaper reporter’s youthful experiences in Latvia and Ukraine, in the turbulent years from the late 1990’s through the early 2000’s. Interspersed with lively anecdotes, the author brings a unique perspective on the struggles of the post-Soviet era, from the day-to-day vicissitudes of “getting by,” to the broader struggles and dynamics that led to the Orange Revolution in Ukraine.” —New Books Network
