Join a panel of guests at Edinburgh's International Book Festival as they discuss Maxim Znak's ground-breaking satirical novel The Zekameron (winner of 2023 English PEN Award) and the precarity of democracy in present-day Europe.
Labour MP Chris Bryant, as chair of the Committee of Standards, is tasked with cleaning up Westminster’s act. At this event, he speaks with a representative from one of the main political prisoner support NGOs in Poland who has worked beside Maxim Znak, the imprisoned Belarusian lawyer and author of The Zekameron. What can champions of democracy learn from other political systems? Join today’s open-minded discussion, chaired by Allan Little.
