Polish(ed): Hamilton book launch

The Reading Room at Bryan Prince Bookseller
1060 King Street West, Hamilton
Free, everyone welcome
We are delighted to welcome four contributors to the anthology,
Polish(ed): Poland Rooted in Canadian Fiction. Joining us for the evening are
editors Kasia Jaronczyk and Małgorzata Nowaczyk, and contributors Ania Szado and Lisa MacLean.
Polish(ed): Poland Rooted in Canadian Fiction is the only anthology of Polish-Canadian writing in Canada and includes many internationally acclaimed and award-winning Canadian writers.
What is the literary and cultural benefit of a diaspora anthology? It presents work from a community, a family of writers. It represents a cultural contribution to Canadian literature. It makes it known where they come from personally and metaphorically, what inspires them. The contributors to Polish(ed) are all writers who share Polish-ness, in whatever ways they define it: as a part of their personal story, be it through similar experiences or influences; as a perspective on the world; as a sense of history and of who they are. The collection also features Canadian writers who have no Polish roots, but are interested in various aspects of Poland and Polish culture.
Can’t make the launch for Polish(ed) in person? Call or email us to pre-order a copy and we’ll get it signed for you.
