citybooks Lublin

Marcin Wronski © Filip Modrzejewski (W.A.B. Publishing)With the stories from Maud Vanhauwaert, Witold Szablowski and Andrzej Stasiuk, the literary component of citybooks Lublin is complete. Thanks to Marcin Wroński, there is now also a Polish text about Chartres. Wroński, from Lublin, travelled to France in the spring of 2012 and wrote Postcards from Chartres.

Hanna Bytniewska emerged from the entrants as the winner, and you can view her winning photos here. Hanna chose Chartres as the destination for her prize city trip. For reading material, she can take along the citybook of her fellow townsman, who wrote the story Postcards from Chartres during his residency in the cathedral city. During his residency, Wroński kept a blog.
