Iowa To Manchester: Anna Polonyi

Iowa To Manchester: Anna Polonyi

If you head to City Library, on the lower ground floor of Manchester Central Library this November, you can pick up a postcard from the desk where you’ll find this very special book trail created especially for Manchester City of Literature and Manchester Literature Festival.

The trail uses Manchester Central Library’s collection to spell out a love letter, both public and intensely private at the same time.

Selected books are by LGBTQ+ writers with links to Manchester and Iowa City.

Anna will share her experience of devising Find Me in the Fiction Section, a secret book trail for Central Library using books by LGBTQ+ writers with links to Manchester and Iowa City. Anna Polonyi is a French-American-Hungarian writer and journalist based in Iowa City of Literature.

She is the author of the poetry chapbook Wayword, written on the Camino de Santiago. She holds an M.F.A in fiction from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and teaches creative writing at the Iowa Young Writers’ Studio.

Hosted by Kate Feld and presented in partnership with Manchester City of Literature and Festival of Libraries.

The letter celebrates the ingenious, creative ways in which LGBTQ+ communities have historically flown under the radar while also remaining in plain sight.
