Event description

Description

MARIA DZIEDZAN was born in Grimsby in 1951. She studied Philosophy at Nottingham University before becoming an English teacher. She taught for several decades in Nottinghamshire and then retired from teaching to focus on her writing.

My Lost Country series is largely fictional although draws inspiration from real life events that took place during the 1940’s and 1950’s in Eastern Europe.

Having a Ukrainian father who witnessed devastating events inflicted upon many small communnities in Ukraine, Maria has never forgotten the distant family that her father left behind and the 3 novels that form the series My Lost Country, depict the struggles the Ukranian people faced from both the Bolsheviks and Fascists when war broke out in Europe.

Maria will present and read from her 3rd novel Bread and Salt at this planned event, introducing the conflicts that feature in her work whilst relating back to real life events that took place in Ukraine during the 1940’s and 1950’s.

This is an opportunity to discover more about events that took place in Eastern Europe duirng and after the 2nd World War, those that are largely forgotten or ignored by western society.
