For those of you living in and around the nation’s capital–seats are still available for my talk at the Smithsonian Associates program this Thursday (June 6), starting at 6:45 pm in Washington, DC.
See images from newly declassified intelligence files. Learn about possible inspirations for Humbert Humbert and the real-world Camp Q, as well as the ways in which Pale Fire reflected Nabokov’s personal tragedies and his lost Russia.
Smithsonian Associates members get a discount, but anyone can attend. Come talk Nabokov in Northwest DC—and take a quiz on the master that could win you a literary prize.
