New novel by Karola Gajda: Are my roots showing?

On November 18, Karola Gajda visited the library to talk about her new novel Are my roots showing? Karola was born in Yorkshire, to Polish parents, who came to Britain as refugees after the Second World War. Her novel tells the story of Magda, with a similar background to the author, who sets off to Warsaw to teach English – but also to explore her roots and see how her parents’ homeland has changed. You can see part of Karola’s talk in the Library in this 360* film made by Tim Woolford of Trekwireless .
