    Name: * Russkie Posidelki Conversation & Conviviality at Museum of Russian Icons
    Date: November 2, 2017
    Event Description:
    New Program Series: Russkie Posidelki
    Conversation & Conviviality
     
    Thursday, November 2, 6:00-8:00pm
    Free drop-in program and free admission to the Museum from 4:00-8:00pm
     
    The debut session of Russkie Posidelki is a special two-hour program that includes tea, vodka, smoked salmon, and other zakuska (Russian hors d'oeuvres). This program is based on the rural Slavic custom of posidelki (“to sit a while”), a traditional fall and winter evening gathering when peasants shared conversation, food, and handicrafts.
     
    The Museum’s Posidelki series will focus on conversation: an informal discussion and exchange of ideas related to Russian traditions, culture, history, language, literature, and the arts. Attendees are encouraged to bring their knitting, whittling, embroidery, or other lap-size projects to work on while we talk!
     
    Hostess Mila Subbotina, the Museum’s Russian Community Liaison, will lead a conversation about Russian and American sayings, idioms, and other linguistic quirks, and will also invite ideas for shaping the Posidelki series.
