журналист, учитель, лауреат многочисленных литературных премий,
писатель, историк литературы, один из самых ярких интеллектуалов поколения,

Впервые в Хьюстоне!

Творческий вечер Дмитрия Быкова – это всегда непредсказуемое, захватывающее действо, переполненное его экстатической харизмой.

Дмитрий Быков необычайно интересен на сцене, что бы он ни делал. Чтение собственных стихов, или прозы, ответы на вопросы из зала, или остроумнейшие комментарии на внезапно пришедшую в голову мысль – все это захватывает его зрителя, как захватывают его читателя написанные им книги.

Прозвучат лучшие стихи разных лет, смешные и не очень, зрители смогут задавать вопросы.
