    Lifelong Learning Lecture Series: Leo and Sonya Tolstoy and the Mystery of Marriage

    Guest Speaker: Dr. Helen Heineman, President Emerita, FSU

    Lasting 48 years, the marriage of this famous novelist and his remarkable wife is documented in their diaries and notebooks. While their union is a story of a great love affair, it was rocked by extremes of happiness and pain and ended tragically in Tolstoy’s death, separated from his wife, in the train station at Yasnaya Polyana.
