Delighted to be chairing Tomasz Różycki this Sunday 7 June at Word Power Books.
Word Power Books and Interaktywny Salon Piszących w Szkocji (Interactive Writing Salon in Scotland) are pleased to present an event with one of the most remarkable Polish poets Tomasz Różycki about his work and its translations into English.
Różycki, 45, is the author of seven poetry volumes which have been very well received in his native country and abroad. He was given the Kościelski Award for Dwanaście stacji /Twelve Stations and was shortlisted for the Nike Award (Polish Booker prize) for Kolonie /Colonies. The latter volume translated into English by Mira Rosenthal was shortlisted for the Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize and the Griffin Poetry Prize last year and won the Northern California Book Award for Poetry in Translation.
Różycki is also a translator in his own right, bringing French authors to the Polish audience.
The event will include readings in both Polish and English as well as conversation with the author. Chaired by Ryan van Winkle.
The event is supported by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Edinburgh and the Polish Cultural Institute in London.
