*Local Strangers – an open and candid conversation of two young writers, Israeli and Ukrainian about the gap between voyeurism and creation, between stereotypes and research and how to write correctly about heroes and culture that is considered to be foreign to you.
One of them is Tasha Karlyka. She was born in Kyiv. Now she lives in Tel Aviv but what she writes about is the world without borders. She has a talent of telling stories in ironic and kind way, uniting the generations, finding sense in absurd and logic in paradox.What she says is:"I got lucky just like my Frosya did (Frosya is a personage of her book). I was born in a multinational family. We had jeish rebbes, orthodox priests, resists, atheists, and ones with darker skin. We had family dinners, arguments and even fights together. But what is the most important- as a family didn't lose respect and love to each other, in spite of the fact that we are so diverse.
The second one is Alice Lindeman. She was raised in Western Ukraine. Now, her family and her, live in Kiev. Durin all her life she was an active participant in the life of Jewish community in Ukraine. She has her face in people, common sense and law. For the past couple of years she has been working on the script for "Kripostna -3", "Kripostna -4" TV series and historic detective "Pleyada". She also is a co-author and a co-host for the "Lem Says" and " Talk show 42" podcast about literature, leadership and todays values . She has been working on her own books as well.
