Where: Blackwell’s Bookshop Edinburgh (EH1 1YS)

Description:

Witness to two world wars and Poland’s struggle for independence, Zofia Nalkowska’s commitment to telling unspeakable tales is her gift to European literature.

Join us for the book launch of From Corsets to Communism, Jenny Robertson’s biography celebrating the achievements of a pioneering, pivotal female writer whose love of life gave her the courage to witness atrocity.

Even though the event is free of charge, we would appreciate it if you registered for a ticket, so that the bookshop is aware of the number of guests attending. You can do so here.
