“Quieter brighter”, reading with Katarzyna Nandzik
“Ciszej jaśniej” (En. “Quieter brighter”) is the second poetry book by Katarzyna Nandzik, born in 1988 in Katowice. The author graduated in Polish philology from the University of Silesia and made her debut with the volume “Kiedy wypowiem” in 2020. In her poetry she deals with topics related to memory, mother, femininity and the search for her own voice. Her poems are delicate, elliptical and full of metaphors. In 2023 the poetry section in the fortnightly “Wiersze” was created in collaboration with the Wisława Szymborska Foundation on the occasion of the centenary of the poet’s birth. On December 10, 2023, a meeting with the author took place at the Spanish Library of Wroclaw, where she read her works and answered questions from the audience.
The event was organised by the Spanish Library in Wrocław and the publishing house Wydawnictwo J. and presented by Jacek Bierut.
