Chopin at the Wedding in Żychlin, or Fryderyk’s Adventures in a Lighter Vein – it is the title of the comic book published by the Poviat Staroste in Konin to celebrate the Chopin Year. Dedicated to the composer, 20-pages long, light in its form novel describes an alleged adventure which could happen to 19-years old Fryderyk in 1929, during his three-days long visit at the wedding of Mr and Mrs Bronikowscy in Żychlin. The project aims at spreading knowledge about Chopin among students of the upper primary and secondary schools. The script of the comic book is written by Szymon Adamus, drawings are made by Paweł Kędzierski from Gdańsk. “Assumptions were very simple. The idea initiators provided much space for inventing the adventure which could happen to young Fryderyk. Now we hope that our offer will be accepted by young readers.”, says the author of the script.
