Author Haruki Murakami will protest Russia's invasion of Ukraine on his radio show this week.
The Japan News reports that Friday's show at 11 p.m. Tokyo time (9 a.m. Central) will be called "Murakami Radio special edition: Music to stop the war."
Material aired will, as always, come from Murakami's personal collection, with a focus on anti-war songs, Western music with an emphasis on the value of life, and commentary about their lyrics and historical background.
Prefer the written word? Literary Hub has some work from acclaimed Ukrainian poet Halyna Kruk, who is also a translator and professor at Lviv State University.
The excerpted works include historical commentary from two literary professors that helps underscore the power of Kruk's words.
