zielony balonikZielony Balonik is a small book club that meets in Edinburgh or Glasgow and specializes in contemporary Polish literature. Members come from a wide range of backgrounds, from Polish born academics, the children of post WW2 settlers, to ‘friends’ who enjoy all things Polish. There is no requirement to speak Polish.

I was invited to speak about The Long Bridge: Out of the Gulags by Urszula Muskus in February 2014 at a meeting held in the library of The New Club in Princes Street, Edinburgh. I enjoyed my time there very much, stimulated by the enthusiasm for Babusia’s book.
