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.

Letter to Gustáv Husák – samizdat essay

„The overall question, then, is this: What profound intellectual and moral impotence will the nation suffer tomorrow, following the castration of its culture today? I fear that the baneful effects on society will outlast by many years the particular political interests that gave rise to them. So much more guilty, in the eyes of history, are those who have sacrificed the country’s spiritual future for the sake of their present power interests.“
