Please join us for a reading with Polish poet, essayist, and critic Tadeusz Dąbrowski as part of his U.S. reading tour for the English translation of his poetry volume POSTS (Zephyr Press, 2017). This event is co-sponsored by the Harriman Institute, the East Central European Center, the Polish Cultural Institute, Zephyr Press, and the City of Gdańsk.

POSTS, Tadeusz Dąbrowski’s second American collection of poems, has just been published by Zephyr Press. His poetry explores the constant struggle with uncertainty, the contrasts between religion and love, and between the deadly serious and the humorous, by playing with form. Nominated for the NIKE prize in 2010, and translated into approximately twenty languages, Dąbrowski is one of the most celebrated contemporary Polish poets. His poetry has been translated into English by two-time Found in Translation award winner Antonia Lloyd-Jones.
