Dear friends:

Please find the link to the program of the Nabokov Readings conference. Please excuse us for so much delay. This was caused by an  unusually large number of last-minute changes (cancellation of all  offline events due to the raging "third wave"). The full program of all the events is available  at http://nabokovreadings.ru/ The past conferences and our monthly Nabokov seminars are available at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoC3LED5csTl9qg91iKKJaQ
