This week’s featured event is:

“The Rooster House: A Ukrainian Family Memoir” by Victoria Belim

Saturday 11th November, 7.30-8.30pm at Lansdown Hall

A “Wild Swans” for Ukraine, “The Rooster House” was one of the most talked-about books at London Book Fair 2022. Published in May 2023 by Virago, it was Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4. An enthralling, richly layered story, told across four generations, it powerfully illuminates the context of the current conflict in Ukraine, but also goes beyond it to reflect on culture and art, geography and language, and how they influence the complexities of who we are. Don’t miss this enthralling and incredibly topical event.

You can read an interview with Victoria Belim here.
