Sat 24 Nov Jana Bakunina - Bird's Milk
Wed 28 Nov Ham Poetry Group
Mon 10 Dec Reading Group


Soviet born writer, journalist and broadcaster Jana Bakunina looks to her own life in her first book Bird’s Milk. From the early days of Perestroika
to the collapse of the USSR, Bakunina explores the lives of ordinary Russians in a period of political turbulence and economic change.

With her background in economics and finance, Jana Bakunina has much to say about the current climate in Russia, but she also tells a personal story, featuring Bulgakov and Tolstoy, her grandmother’s cooking and the Russian
rock scene. Her childhood was in many ways traditional, but with Gorbachev’s reforms and the subsequent fall of the Soviet Union, new horizons opened.
