AnnMarie Kajencki, professor of English at Bismarck State College, will attend a conference at Casimir Pulaski University of Technology and Humanities in Radom, Poland, Oct. 6-7.

The conference theme is "Casimir Pulaski: His Epoch in History, Literature, and Culture." A Polish liberator and brilliant military tactician, Pulaski joined Washington's troops during the Revolutionary War. After Congress approved establishment of a cavalry in 1778, Pulaski was appointed to lead it.

Kajencki's presentation focuses on Pulaski's critical role in the revolution's Battle of Brandywine on Sept. 11, 1777. Kajencki's 2005 book, "Count Casimir Pulaski: From Poland to America, a Hero's Fight for Liberty," will be featured in another conference presentation on Pulaski in American children's literature.
