Book to World
I’m really proud of Book to World, a literary translation group I started at the Institute of English Studies, University of Warsaw. Our members are students who collaborate in producing and marketing actual books.
We have finished our first project, a complete Polish edition of Oscar Wilde’s stories from The Happy Prince and Other Tales (1888) and A House of Pomegranates (1891), translated by nine talented young people.
If you’re curious here’s a link to the group’s website (in Polish). Check it out, they’re lovely.
The book is a thing of class and beauty. If you speak Polish you can click on the button below to have a look, and maybe even line those student pockets with some much needed cash. They deserve that to a ridiculous degree!
