Justyna Daniluk zaprasza na dyskusję z Piotrem Czerwińskim,
autorem powieści, organizowana przez Swiat Ksiazki Polska.


Książka – jak pisze Czerwiński – opowiada o turystach, ponieważ
wszyscyśmy turyści i każdy podróżuje. Niektórzy nie wracają
z podróży i to jest dokładnie taki rodzaj turystów, o
których jest ta książka. Ponadto opowiada o szaleństwie,
too, bo tylko walnięci turyści kupują tickety w jedną stronę,
tak jak my. Szaleństwo, tak myślę, to kinda największy sport
dwudziestego pierwszego wieku.


Swoje poezje – komentarze współczesności zaśpiewa i zagra Paweł Gawroński.


Ta joj!

The book Bombing of Poems over Warsaw documents a public intervention during which 80 poems by contemporary Polish and Chilean poets were dropped from a helicopter over the Castle Square and The Old Town.

Warsaw is the fourth city after Santiago de Chile, Dubrovnik and Guernica where The Bombing of Poems has taken place. Professor John Hutnyk and Cristóbal Bianchi on behalf of Casagrande will introduce the book.  The event will also feature the screening of a film documenting the intervention in Warsaw.

Drinks will be served.
