Vladimir Natanovich Shatsev at the Russian Student Association’s poetry group at Hart House (UofT); December 2006
We've got a comment on the post Vladimir Shatsev: Readings from Russia:
Looks like just one more cultural function missed...what a shame.Here is Vladimir's notes to this comment:
Clearly, the happenings in Bloor West have improved over the years.
Interesting that Chapters has moved into the Village, I trust it is a profitable venture both for the trade and the community. I look forward to reading about more events in this fine area of the city.

Dear Odessa,We love your feedback. Please write your comments and see you at Hart House at meetings of the RSA’s poetry group.
Thanks a lot for your letter. The Readings from Russia was an important event in my Canadian life. Unfortunately my writing skills in English are not sufficient for self-expression; however I do hope to deliver my thoughts and suggestions in a proper way.
For all my life I have been teaching Literature, speaking the truth, in a very effective way. I continue to be active in my professional field even here, in Toronto.
In theory, the Runnymede Chapters would like to give me a place and time for monthly meetings of the Club of Russian Literature. Also in theory, the Russian House is still looking for a place and time for weekend classes of Literature for kids and adults. But in practice...
I have another option right now. On Sundays at 7 pm I regularly give lectures on Russian Literature for the Russian Student Association’s (RSA) poetry group at Hart House (UofT). I think everyone would be welcome. The next lecture is about Egyptian Nights and Mozart and Salieri.
I also have an idea for a Royal Toronto Oblomov Society which could be the society of mostly English speaking people involved in the reading of Goncharov, Gogol, Nabokov etc. The only requirement to become a member of this society is to read the novels relaxing on the sofa, drinking hot chocolate, and from time to time exchanging opinions by phone or by e-mail.
My dear Odessa, you will be amazed, but ordinary Canadians even well educated ones, have no idea about Isaac Babel or Ilf and Petrov. They should be enlightened for their own benefits.
I just have forgotten to mention that the next lecture on Russian Literature would be not on the coming Sunday, but Sunday, January 14th, 2007.
