On September 7, 2019 at 13:00 we would like to invite you to the “Kupidon” knayp-club, Pushkinska st., 1-3/5, to take part in the Eighth National Reading!
This year we will be reading a whooping EIGHT! short stories, namely: “A Good Lady” by Eliza Orzeszkowa; “Smoke” by Maria Konopnicka; “The Barrel Organ” by Bolesław Prus; “My Father Joins the Fire Brigade” by Bruno Schulz; “The Ploughing” by Władysław Stanisław Reymont; “We Will Be Filched by Ravens and Crows...” by Stefan Żeromski; “Sachem” by Henryk Sienkiewicz; and “Sawa” by Henryk Rzewuski.
See you on the first Saturday in September!
Let us remind you that in 2012 the President of Poland initiated the all-Polish action “National Reading”, which is aimed at the popularization of Polish literary heritage, strengthening of self-identification and promotion of the dramatic reading culture in its best forms.
Thus, on September 7, 2019 joint readings of eight Polish short stories will be organized throughout Poland in schools, libraries, cultural institutions and the like. The Polish Institute in Kyiv also takes part in this literary relay race, and its representatives will wait for all those wishing to participate in the “Kupidon”. The text will be available on site.
