“Polish Bookshelf” and Found in Translation in New York and Philadelphia
A series of events co-organised by the Book Institute will take place over the coming days in the United States.

“Polish Bookshelf” in American libraries
The idea of "Polish Bookshelf" was born a year ago in Great Britain. By establishing cooperation with librarians and encouraging them to enrich their collections with books by Polish writers, we wish to reach readers of world libraries: to gain new audiences for Polish literature, to show its diversity and charm, to promote knowledge about Poland, and to build positive associations with it. Now "Bookshelf" officially starts in the United States.
