Vášáryová, Brožová: She-Wolf

  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: October 6, 2017, 19:00 – 21:00

Vlčice (She-Wolf) is a book by Karel Hvížďala of interviews with Magda Vášáryová (a candidate for the Slovak presidency, among other things) and Iva Brožová (winner of a dispute with the Czech president, among other things). The author borrowed the title from English history, where clever, ambitious and diplomatically adroit queens were dubbed she-wolves.

The book will be “baptised” by Lenka Bradáčová, while Dáša Vokatá and Oldřich Kaiser will provide musical accompaniment.

Renata Klusáková will moderate the evening and host a talk with the two women.

A Word about Words – samizdat essay

„The point I am trying to make is that words are a mysterious, ambiguous, ambivalent and perfidious phenomenon. They can be rays of light in a realm of darkness, as Belinsky once described Ostrovsky’s Storm. They can also be lethal arrows. Worst or all, at times they can be one or the other. They can even be both at once!“
