Marzena Sowa, the author, was born in Poland in 1979; by the time she was ten years old she had experienced Communist rule, Chernobyl, the Solidarity factory strikes of 1988, and the triumph of Lech Wałęsa.
Her memoir, with art by French comics creator Sylvain Savoia, captures the triumph of the innocent pleasures of childhood, as well as the resonance in her young world of world-changing events.
Copies of Marzi will be available for purchase and signing, and refreshments will be served. This event is open to the general public.
