Poet Lyudmyla Khersonsky (DG 2022-2023) has a new book of poetry forthcoming from Arrowsmith Press. “Today is a Different War,” completed in residence at Civitella, is a portrayal of Ukrainian life during war. Marie Howe (CRF 2022) writes of the collection, “Read these poems of Lyudmyla Khersonska and hear the voice of a woman awake and alive in Ukraine under Russian bombardment. Here is a poet so in love with the living world that her love enables her to describe its destruction. You want the news? Listen to her voice and feel the abstractions crack and break open in the wake of her witness.”
