Frank L. Vigoda, is a pushme-pullyou translator. With Janus-like faces, split tongues, a double heart and brains, he works hours after hours. His output, published and not yet, includes several books and hundreds of poems. His translations into Polish are usually signed Franek Wygoda.

Ann Frenkel, a native of California who grew up in Oregon and spent most of her adult life in Boston, returned to her native state five years ago. A trained musicologist and librarian, in the 1990s, she accompanied the banjoist Geoff Freed on the piano in the duo “Black Tie Banjo” and together they recorded two CDs. Currently she serves as the Associate University Librarian for Research and Instructional Services at UC Riverside.

Gwido Zlatkes was born in Warsaw, and educated as a literary scholar and historian. In the 1970s and -80s he was active in avant-garde student theatre in Poland and worked as a journalist for the underground “Solidarność ” (Solidarity). In the US since 1989, he currently works as a reference librarian in Special Collections & Archives at UC Riverside.

The highlights of the after-performance reception will include:

  • Chruściki—Polish angel-wings cakes
  • Pączki—Polish donuts
  • Makowiec—Polish poppy seed cake
  • Polish born Gwido’s Glorious Guacamole (naturalized)
