On 3 September at noon, we invite you to another literary walk with Łukasz Wojtusik, curator of the Literature in Kraków Story section. Wojtusik will share the secrets of creating a literary podcast, and we will also visit one of the most original places in Kraków where books feel good. Participation in the walk is free of charge.

Łukasz Wojtusik is a man of words who knows (almost) everything about books. Author of the literary podcast, Wojtusik Alphabet , winner of the Małopolska Journalists’ Award for the best cultural journalist, collaborator of many cultural institutions, co-author of three books – conversations. We will begin our journey along the literary paths of Wojtusik Alphabet in Kraków with Kraków Story in the Wyspiański Pavilion. There, Łukasz Wojtusik will talk about the idea of the venue, book selection, why he reads and why he records people. He will also tell us how the podcast, Wojtusik Alphabet he has been creating, is developing. Then we will set off on the trail of Kraków book sites. We will stop at Compare Bookstore – a new bookshop at 20, Main Market Square. From there, we will move on to one of the most original places where books feel comfortable and can find more readers – the Abecadło Antiquarian Bookshop. Waiting for us on site will be the owner, Antoni Stąpor, who will talk about the history of the place and share his knowledge of literature with us. We’ll also talk about the second life of books and the white ravens that readers look for in places like the Abecadło Antiquarian Bookshop.

About the Antiquarian Bookshop itself: 

The Abecadło Antiquarian Bookshop is located on the site of the former Pod Aniołem Stróżem pharmacy, at 18, Kościuszki street in Kraków, close to Lajkonik Zwierzyniecki Square, Jubilat stop, Wawel Castle and Rodła Boulevards on the Vistula River in Kraków.

Its unique interior is made up of historic pharmacy furnishings from 1899, which had been saved and restored for all to see.
