New Polish Fiction: Agnieszka Dale and A.M. Bakalar in conversation with Liz Hoggard
Wednesday 25th October 18:30 - 20:30 at London - Gower Street
Waterstones Gower Street and Jantar Press, along with the Polish Cultural Institute are delighted to present an evening of New Polish Fiction.
The characters in Agnieszka Dale's Fox Season stories all want to find greatness, until they realise that greatness isn't their thing. But what is?
Dale writes about being Polish; being outside Poland; being visible and invisible; a woman; from the East, from the West or from somewhere central. In turn she creates an intimate kingdom: a happy nation with no distinct nationality, a place where people still try, still believe.
Bakalar's Children of Our Age is insightful and unforgiving: a deeply human and timely story of Polish immigrants. Sweeping between their past in Poland and their present in Britain, this electrifying novel explores the ways unlikely encounters transform lives, the limits of loyalty, and love.
Join both authors this evening to celebrate their new books in conversation with journalist Liz Hoggard.
£6 (£4 student) tickets are available online via Ticketscript, by telephone 020 7636 1577 and in-store.
