The Institute of Russian Literature in St. Petersburg, Russia, known as "the Pushkin House," will be conducting this year's Nabokov Readings online. Organized by Tatiana Ponomareva (formerly of the Vladimir Nabokov Museum, presently of the Pushkin House), the Readings will be held on June 20-July 4. The Readings include an academic conference (among the presenters are Andrei Ar'ev, Stephen Blackwell, Aleksandr Dolinin, Michael Meylac, Maxim Shrayer and Olga Voronina, see here for a full program in Russian) and a festival (follow this link here to see upcoming events).
