the world remembers the late Alexander Solzhenitsyn the
writer and dissident, the residents of one Vermont town are remembering a neighbor.
18 years in Cavendish was the longest Solzhenitsyn lived in any one place – and
townspeople still have vivid memories of his impact on their community.
The famed Russian writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn has died at the age of 89. The reclusive Solzhenitsyn granted few interviews, but the editor of
Russian Life Magazine Paul Richardson was able to speak with
Solzhenitsyn’s wife Natalya in Moscow this past spring.
Richardson speaks with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb.
