Reading from the Heart of Europe: “Dreams and Stones”

Reading from the Heart of Europe: “Dreams and Stones”

Seattle-based monthly reading group Readings from the Heart of Europe will feature Magdalena Tulli’s novel Dreams and Stones / Sny i kamienie at its November meeting. All readers with an interest in the author or book are welcome to follow or participate in the discussion.

Magdalena Tulli, 65, made her name in Poland in 2011 with her frank autobiography Włoskie szpilki / Italian High Heels; that book departed in style from her earlier, more metaphysical and experimental novels that earned her critical acclaim, including three nominations to the Nike book awards in Poland. Dreams and Stones is her 1995 debut novel. The book is available at Amazon.

As is usual for the Readings from the Heart of Europe meetings, the book’s translator, Prof. Bill Johnston of Indiana University, will be joining the discussion. Prof. Johnston is the winner of the 2014 Transatlantyk Prize for translation from Polish; he translated literally dozens of books and short works.
