Poles living abroad are invited to take part in the campaign „National Reading”
The campaign “National Reading” (Narodowe Czytanie) initiated in 2012 by the President of Poland Bronisław Komorowski will start for the third time on 6th September 2014. The campaign aims at promoting reading, richness of Polish literature, Polish language and the sense of common identity.
Works of Aleksander Fredro were jointly read in the last year campaign in more than 700 places in Poland. This year on 6th September “the Trilogy” of Henryk Sienkiewicz will be read.

The campaign will start in Warsaw at 12 a.m. in the Saxon Garden where the initiator of the campaign the President of Poland Bronisław Komorowski will be present.
