DACAMERA and Inprint join forces in this heartfelt celebration of the life and work of Polish poet Adam Zagajewski (1945-2021), prize-winning writer of international renown.  Through his insightful and quietly radiant poems, Zagajewski acquired loyal readers around the world; and as a member of the UH Creative Writing Program faculty, journeying to Houston from Paris and later Krakow every spring for 18 years, he leaves a vibrant legacy of friends, students, and colleagues across the U.S.

French cellist Sonia Wieder-Atherton and pianist Sarah Rothenberg interweave the music that inspired many of Zagajewski’s poems with readings of his luminous poetry.  Readers will include celebrated poet and author Edward Hirsch, president of the Guggenheim Foundation; Rich Levy, executive director of Inprint; and community leader and friend, Lillie Robertson.

The publication in 2023 of Zagajewski’s last collection, True Life, offers the occasion to discover new poems from this indispensable poet.
