conference - 2020


Reading culture of the young generation

Lodz, 21st September, 2020


Due to the exceptional situation related to the epidemiological threat in Poland and other countries, the organizing committee of the conference „Reading culture of the young generation” made the difficult decision to cancel the meeting scheduled for September 21, 2020 and to postpone it to the next year. This step seems necessary to ensure maximum security for our participants and to achieve the objectives of the conference. We would like to thank our sponsors and patrons who have expressed their willingness to cooperate, we hope that it will be maintained at the new date of the event. We also thank all the speakers and participants who submitted their applications. We will inform everyone individually as soon as a new conference date is set.


With best wishes for health and safety,
