The Polish American Librarians Association is looking for writers who live in the Chicago area, or plan to be in Chicago June 29-30, who are willing to participate in PALA's efforts to raise awareness about the Polish diaspora by making an appearance in the PALA exhibit booth during the American Library Association's Annual Conference in Chicago. The conference draws some 25,000 librarians and library supporters from around the country and the world.
Members of PALA will be hosting the booth and would like to schedule a series of author appearances during exhibit hours to draw visitors to the booth and to stimulate interest in including Polish and Polish American authors in library collections, as well as books that accurately depict the history of Poland and the unique contribution of Poles and people of Polish descent to the world.
If you are interested, please email Leonard Kniffel, who is coordinating the author appearance for PALA, at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 31.
Leonard Kniffel is the author of one of the best books about traveling to Poland, A Polish Son in the Motherland: An American's Journey Home.
