Reading and presentation of Martin Solotruk's poetry at the Café FRA in Prague

A literary Café Fra, a major cultural point in the Prague literary scene, invite one of the Versopolis nominees Matin Solotruk to give a special authorial reading in January 2015. Solotruk, who is currently working on his new collection of poems was invited and hosted by a leading Czech poet, Petr Borkovec.

The Slovak poet, in addition to reading poetry, offered his audience a view on how his work arises as well as his inspirations. This was followed by a discussion with the author about his perception of literature, Czech and Slovak literary relations, as well as the position of artist-poet in society. The author also cared to point out his Ruthenian roots, his grandparents and other influences, which were also formative influences for his poetry work.
