2015 ASEEES Convention
- Aquila Polonica exhibited at the 2015 ASEEES annual convention in Philadelphia—marking our sixth year at ASEEES! All of our titles released through that time were on display and available for sale. November 19–22, 2015 - Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies Annual Convention, Philadelphia
In addition, a stack of Advance Review Copies of Aquila Polonica's March 2016 release, Echoes of Tattered Tongues: Memory Unfolded, by John Guzlowski, was given away gratis to interested attendees.
Aquila Polonica president Terry Tegnazian and creative director Ewa Wojciak attended from Los Angeles, and were joined by translator Jarek Garlinski and author John Guzlowski. One of the high points of this year's convention was the ceremony on Friday, November 20th, at which the three winners of the 2015 Aquila Polonica Prize were announced.
During the ASEEES convention, Jarek Garlinski presented a paper entitled "The British and the 1944 Warsaw Uprising" as part of the panel titled "Dissidence, Disability, and Rebellion: Twentieth Century Poland."
It was great to see old acquaintances and meet new ones, both attendees and exhibitors.
We also had time to take in some of the sights, and enjoyed a couple of highly recommended restaurants offering super-fresh local fare (Barbuzzo and White Dog Cafe), which are among those making "Philly" one of the hot new food scenes in the U.S.
