Sat 18 March 2017, 13:30 – 15:30 GMT
Marseyside Polonia is privileged to host a special event with Olga Tokarczuk, one of the most celebrated contemporary Polish authors. Master of storytelling with philosophical depth who brings into her writing mythical quality inspired by the work of Carl Jung. Award-winning author courageously looking at Polish identity against its multicultural history set in ethnically diverse Poland.
Olga Tokarczuk books such as “House of Day, House of Night” (Northwestern University Press) and “Primeval and Other Times” (Granta Books) have been already printed in English with two recent novels, “The Books of Jacob” and “Flights”, will shortly be published in the UK, for the first time, by Fitzcarraldo Editions.
