Poland: The Long Journey to Freedom
Book Talk: MARZI by Marzena Sowa and Sylvain Savoia
To participate to the commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the declaration of martial law in Poland, the NATO Multimedia Library organized on 13 December, at NATO Headquarters, a book presentation and signing by Marzena Sowa and Sylvain Savoia, authors of the award-winning “Marzi”, a comic strip about life in Poland during the 1980s as seen through the eyes of a young girl.
Marzena Sowa’s memoir of a childhood shaped by politics feels remarkably fresh and recent. With expressive and engaging art by Sylvain Savoia, “Marzi” is a moving and resounding story of an ordinary girl in turbulent, changing times.
