A rare chance to meet a new generation of Slovak authors as we mark 30 years since the Velvet Revolution of 1989. Three leading contemporary Slovak writers – Balla, Uršuľa Kovalyk and Ivana Dobrakovová – will present recently published works in English translation and discuss how their country has changed over the past 30 years with Dr Rajendra Chitnis, Associate Professor in Czech,
University College Oxford.
The authors will be joined by translators Julia and Peter Sherwood. Copies of the books will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served.
