NEW YORK: Wiesław Myśliwski – literary discussio

   As part of the 2012 Polish session of the European Book Club, The New York Public Library (Mid-Manhattan division) will discuss one of the great rural epics of twentieth-century world literature - Wiesław Myśliwski's Stone Upon Stone, in an award-winning translation by Bill Johnston. The events of the Twentieth Century can read about in history books, but the struggle between the lyric and the prosaic in the narrative offers a sense of history from the inside.
   The event will be presented by The Mid-Manhattan Library and the Polish Cultural Institute New York on Thursday, September 27 at 8:00 pm - Corner Room Gallery, 455 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY.  Admission is free with registration at www.europeanbookclub.org.
