During this presentation, Edward Zawadzki will discuss several people included in his book "Poles in the New World." Poles have been in the forefront of some of the defining moments of world history, including the settlement and development of North American continent. From their first appearance on American shores in 1608, a full 12 years before the Mayflower, Poles have taken the lead in the shaping of our North American culture. Their contributions have enriched the armed forces, the political arena, the entertainment industry, science and other diverse fields.
Mr Zawadzki hails from Toronto where he has established a career as a sportscaster for several radio and television stations and an author of several sports books. After enjoying success as a sports writer, through, he decided to write a book about noteworthy Poles in North American because he was so hurt by the derogatory stereotypes of Poles held by many Canadians and Americans
