East End Libraries Present: A Zoom Author Visit with Carmen Bugan, Ph.D. Author of Burying the Typewriter: Childhood Under the Eye of the Secret Police

December 7, 2020, 5 pm6 pm.


On March 10, 1983, twelve-year old Carmen Bugan’s father, Ion, a Romanian political dissident, disappeared at the hands of Nicholae Ceausescu’s Securitate. During the next five years, he – and his wife and three children – endured unfathomable horrors before his release in 1989 and their emigration to America. Twenty-five years later, Carmen Bugan, a prize-winning poet and professor, has written a stunning memoir about her family’s extraordinary lives under a repressive Communist regime.
