extended hiatus

Due to expanded commitments to my small press, I've been forced to cut down on some other projects. I would be delighted if someone else came forward to carry on this blog. Meanwhile, I hope some of the links and contacts herein are of some use.



Adam Zagajewski: Bucknell: 9/23/08

Tuesday, Sept 23, 7pm: Poet Adam Zagajewski will read at Bucknell Hall.

Poet, novelist, essayist, and memoirist Adam Zagajewski is one of the most well known and highly regarded of contemporary Polish poets. A native of Lvov, a largely Polish city that became part of the Soviet Union shortly after his birth, Zagajewski was a major figure in the Polish New Wave literary movement of the 1970s and of the anti-Communist Solidarity Movement of the 1980s. His most recent books in English are Eternal Enemies and Without End: New and Selected Poems, both from FSG. Zagajewski teaches at the University of Chicago and spends part of the year in Krakow, Poland.

Earlier on Tuesday, at 4pm, Zagajewski will give a Q&A session in the Willard Smith Library in the English Department of Bucknell's campus.
