ASA College Hosts “The Golden Age of Russian Literature”
After a world tour, “The Gold Age of Russian Literature,” a cultural exhibit showcasing the great authors and folk traditons of the Russian people, was presented at ASA College.

Works included portraits of literature greats such as Alexander Pushkin, Leo Tolstoy,and Anton Chekhov as well as more whimsical themes popular in this genre.
