Question for all on Helena Modjeska book from the United States

18 Jan 2009 /  #1
I am working on a book on Modjeska Canyon. It is a very small area of Southern California, here in the states that was once home to Helena Modjeska. I would like to find out what some people there in Poland would think about a book over there, about the area of Modjeska Canyon? The book would be about the entire canyon area, but would obviously have an entire Chapter dedicated to Helene Modjeska.

I am working with a publisher and am just starting my research. It will be in a series of books called, "Images of America" by Arcadia Publishing. It is all photos with captions of what the photo contains. It would contain approx. 30 images directly related to Modjeska.

From a marketing point of view, would it go over well in Krackow or all over Poland for that matter? It would sell for about $20.00 dollars US. Would it be best to have it translated or would it go over good in English?

Hello John,
This sounds interesting.Why limit it to the Kraków area? In my opinion ,you should translate it.Also promote it at bookstores etc.

I think unless they are history buffs pertaining to the theater in the 1800's there might not be much interest. Maybe more for her son with the archetectural field. He was a great engineer who helped to build many of or famous bridges standing.
