We first know foreign countries from colorful postcards sent by friends. Then, when planning a trip, we buy guides. We cross borders, visit cities and beaches, and relax. But apart from the tourist reality, there is something we cannot always touch and experience. Iza Klementowska does it for us. She is the author of four important books, in which she shows us unknown places through their difficult history, trying to find a key to their soul. In her non-travel books, Klementowska talks about people. Sometimes about our old relatives or neighbors, sometimes about refugees looking for happiness. All of these books break stereotypes and show a different side of things we only thought we understood.
Iza Klementowska has been a contributor to publications like “Duży Format”, “Gazeta Wyborcza”, “Newsweek” and “National Geographic Traveler”. Her texts have also been published in the anthologies “Your Own Way”, “Questions that are not to be asked”, “Courage is a Woman”, “Faces of Success. Down Syndrome”. Iza Klementowska is also the author of non-fiction books “The Loneliness of the Portuguese”, Czarne Publishing, “Minutes. About being old”, DW PWN, “The Skeleton of a White Elephant”, Czarne Publishing, and "Skin. How to Welcome Refugees", Karakter.
The program is presented by Greenpoint Library and conducted in Polish. The zoom link will be sent to registered participants 30 minutes before the meeting.
