Heather Kirk, BA, has just published her sixth book. The book, Be Not Afraid: The Polish (R)evolution, “Solidarity,” was published in late 2011 by Borealis Press of Ottawa. It is an introduction for young adults (Grades 11 and 12) and ordinary adults to the non-violent resistance movement, Solidarity. As distinguished British historian Timothy Garton Ash has explained: Solidarity was “the icebreaker for the end of the Cold War.” Heather, who taught in universities and colleges for 30 years, has been writing professionally for more than 40 years.
