Friday April 11th is the date for an evening of Polish poetry organized by Over the Edge at Sheridan’s Wine Bar, opposite St. Nicholas’s Church, Galway, with the help of Galway-based Polish journalist Magalena Szulc. Also reading on the evening will be Loughrea-based Polish writer, Kinga Cybulska. The evening is being supported by the Polish Embassy in Ireland. The reading will start at 8pm.
There will be readings from the work of the great Polish poets Halina Poswiatowska, Wislawa Szymborska, Zbigniew Herbert and Czeslaw Milosz and more. Verses will be read by volunteers in both Polish, and English. On top of that, some of Galway’s Polish residents will present their own poems to the audience. Galway’s Writer-in-Residence Michael O’Loughlin will also read some of his favourite Polish poems. Kevin Higgins will MC the evening. All are welcome.
