The Natolin Library is pleased to announce the inauguration of its series Meet the Authors, organized in cooperation with the European Civilization Chair and the European Neighbourhood Policy Chair. The series is intended to enable students and other participants to meet important authors in various disciplines on a more informal basis than is possible with a special lecture, and give an opportunity for discussion. The first meeting took place on Tuesday 23rd of October. The speaker was Professor Andrzej NOWAK, of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków (his alma mater) and the History Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. Professor Nowak is also a member of the visiting Faculty of the College of Europe at Natolin, and has lectured at many leading universities including Harvard, Columbia and Cambridge. A specialist on nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Poland and Russia, he is remarkable for his multi-volume history of Poland from its origins until the present. The three volumes so far published cover the period to 1468. The meeting was chaired by Professor Richard BUTTERWICK-PAWLIKOWSKI. Some of Professor NOWAK's books are currently exhibited in the Library. A selective bibliography based on the Natolin Library collections can be viewed here.
