Lemistry: A Celebration of Stanisław Lem

By Adam Roberts | September 8, 2011
Categories: Events and Appearances

When: Fri 9 Sep 2011, 18.30 – 20.00
Where: Conference Centre, British Library
Price: £7.50 / £5 concessions

"A truly great European writer, Stanisław Lem (1921-2006) transcends both Polish literature and his chosen genre, science fiction. Best known for his twice-filmed novel Solaris, he was a virtuoso storyteller who packed his writing with philosophy, comedy, and allegory. This evening’s rich celebration features contributions by writers John Gray, Toby Litt, Wojciech Orliński and Adam Roberts, eminent translator Antonia Lloyd-Jones and film makers Ari Folman (currently filming Lem’s The Futurological Congress as follow up to Waltz with Bashir) and The Brothers Quay. Chaired by journalist and critic Rosie Goldsmith."
