The Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24th has shaken the world to its foundation. Join author and public speaker Dr. Ruslana Westerlund, a local Ukrainian whose family is still in Ukraine, as she shares about her country, her resilient fearless people, and this unjust war. Dr. Westerlund has appeared on all major Wisconsin TV networks (NBC 15, PBS, Channel 3000, WKOW) and newspapers (WSJ, CapTimes, Time Tribune) speaking about her experiences. In this talk, she will discuss the war and read from her memoir From Borsch to Burgers, which she published before the war started. She'll share stories about Ukraine and show pictures of her peaceful agrarian country briefly covering the history of Ukraine's fight against the Russian aggressor for more than a century. She will have her books for sale following the program and all the proceeds from the sales will go to support Ukrainians in Ukraine.
