The talk, by Russian Life editor Paul Richardson, discusses progress on a book about lesser-known chapters in Russian-American history, with digressions into the challenges of telling Americans stories about Russia and the significance of Anton Pavlovich’s unusual pet. The bulk of the talk, however, will look at the astonishing story of one Hoosier who sought his fortune in Russia, and how things didn’t work out so well.
