PORT HARCOURT WORLD BOOK CAPITAL PRESENTS AT WROCLAW WORLD BOOK CAPITAL
At the foot of the Sudety Mountain and on the Oder River, seats Wroclaw, one of Poland’s oldest and most beautiful cities. Wroclaw has twelve islands, one hundred and twelve bridges and a population of almost 636,000 people. ‘The rich, stormy history of the city is inscribed in its walls’ someone wrote, citing the Cathedral Island, The Old Town Hall and the Centennial Hall, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
2016 would remain a special year in the life of Poland’s fourth largest city, for in this year Wroclaw was the European Capital of Culture as well as the UNESCO World Book Capital.
Koko Kalango, Project Director of Port Harcourt, UNESCO World Book Capital 2014 and Vivian Anagor, Project Assistant, were at Wroclaw for the opening ceremony of the 2016 World Book Capital (WBC) which held from 22 to 24 April.
