“How do you say F-you in Ukrainian?” (In-Person)

Swearing, joke-telling and sweet-nothings are some of our most fun and powerful moments in communicating with one another. But during conflict, language quickly corresponds with power, and translations can become fraught. Join Stranger’s Guide Magazine and NPR’s Rough Translation podcast in conversation with writers from multilingual societies as they discuss the challenges of living between languages—and tell their favorite insults and jokes. Featuring author Dmitry Bykov, Gregory Warner of NPR’s Rough Translation, and Stranger’s Guide editor-in-chief Kira Brunner Don. Purchase tickets here:
