The Chicago literary festival:

After Miłosz: Polish Poetry in the 20th and 21th Centuries

is coming soon!

Let's meet September 30th - October 3rd at the Chopin Theater in Chicago

The Chicago literary festival entitled After Miłosz: Polish Poetry in the 20th and 21st Century is the biggest Polish poetry event in the United States this year. The festival celebrates the year of Czesław Miłosz and commemorates the centennial of the birth of the Nobel Prize winner. The festival goes beyond the familiar formula of commenting the work of the poet and offers a broad view of the contemporary Polish poetry scene. Besides the academic conference dedicated to Miłosz's work, and a panel with some of the greatest poets in America (Jorie Graham, Charles Simic) commemorating the artist and his influence on American poetry, the program includes readings by the most talented modern Polish poets of three generations, from the best known (Adam Zagajewski, Piotr Sommer) to the most accomplished contemporary young writer, Justyna Bargielska. An important part of the festival will be two concerts, opening with the best Polish rappers FISZ and EMADE, whose songs are inspired by Polish poetry. Another concert will present top jazz singer, Patricia Barber, who will perform especially for this occasion.
