War Refugee Immigrants in America: A Conversation with the Author of Echoes of Tattered Tongues   

The EU Delegation invites you to a conversation between Johns Hopkins University lecturer and Pears on a Willow Tree author, Leslie Pietrzyk, and John Guzlowski about his powerful new book, 
Echoes of Tattered Tongues: Memory Unfolded.

In this major tour de force told through both poetry and prose, Guzlowski traces the arc of one of the millions of immigrant families of America, in this case, survivors of the maelstrom of World War II who also happen to be Guzlowski's family: his mother and father, survivors of the war, taken as slave laborers by the Germans; his sister and himself, born soon after the war in Displaced Persons camps in Germany; the family's first days in America, and later their neighbors in America, some dysfunctional and lost, some mean, some caring and kind; and the relationships between and among them all. As Guzlowski unfolds the story backwards through time, he seduces us into taking the journey with him.

This program is in conjunction with the Embassy of Poland.
