The Willy Brandt Centre and the MBP kindly invite on 9th April, 2014, at 5 p.m., to an author's meeting with Brygida Helbig and the presentation of her book "Little Heaven".
The meeting is chaired by Prof. Krzysztof Ruchniewicz

The protagonist of the story, Marzena, lives in England, discovers the secrets of her family, analyzes her "homelessness" and looks for an identity. In her family she unveils the history of the Polish and German people, the history of human fates dominated by the ideas of socialism and Nazism. Slowly, she unravels the complicated lots of her great-grand-parents, parents and herself. Truth mixes with the necessity to uncover the truth, and reminiscences of the family with imagination. "Little Heaven" is a short tale, looking through the glass and discovering "treasures".

Brygida Helbig (Prof. Brigitta Helbig-Mischewski PhD habil.), born in Szczecin, is a writer and literary scholar. She works at the Polish-German Research Institute in the Collegium Polonicum in Słubicy (UAM Poznań, Viadrina), co-funded by Humboldt University in Berlin. She is the author of prose books such as "Those from the GDR and other people", nominated for the prize NIKE iGRYFIA, as well as about Maria Komornicka "Lost goddesses".

We kindly invite you to the meeting:
Date: 9th April, 2014, 5 p.m.
Place: Kawiarnia Literatka, Rynek 56/57, Wrocław
