Gloucester Library launches Polish Book collection
The collection celebrates 100 years of Polish independence and 250 years of Polish /British diplomacy
This collection of 20 books written in English has been donated by the Polish Embassy and will be launched at an event taking place at 12pm, Saturday 27th October in Gloucester Library.
To mark the occasion four Polish writers will talk about living and writing in the UK and how their experience of migration and displacement has inspired them to write.
The writers featured in the talk are; Aleksandra Laird, a writer of innovative language teaching and learning materials, Rita Krawczyk, who published her first book about cultural history, Agnieszka Bednarska, a fiction writer who writes about the experience of migration and displacement and Ada Johnson, who will talk about her experience of writing her first book.
The discussion will be led by Joanna Kosmalska, a literary scholar specialising in transcultural literature.
Cllr Dave Norman, cabinet member for Libraries said: “We are pleased to receive these Polish books for Gloucester Library and look forward to hearing the authors speak about their writing influences and their journey into print”
