The Connecticut-Ukraine Connection
Ukraine has defended itself against the Russian invasion for more than a year. That conflict has highlighted some unique connections with people living in Connecticut. When the war started, two local writers and educators felt a need to do something. So they transformed their correspondence with friends in Ukraine and Russia into a multimedia play. Host Tom Kuser speaks with co-writers Nancy Herman and Lynda Sorensen about their work Words from the Front. We’ll also speak with Congressman Jim Himes about his trip to Ukraine. And we’ll find out what local international aid groups have been doing to help stem the suffering caused by the war.
