Three Faces of an Angel launch in Prague

Date: 1st December 2014
Location: Václav Havel Library

Jiří Pehe, Tomáš Halík, Gerald Turner and Michael Tate: A panel discussion about literature, politics and religion on the occasion of the launch of the English-language translation of Jiří Pehe's novel Three Faces of an Angel. Moderator: Erik Best

Pehe's novel, a story of three generations of a Czech-German-Jewish family raises a number of questions about history, politics, identity and religion in the 20th century. Panelists will discuss these issues as well as difficulties with translating Czech literature into other languages.

Update: Unfortunately Tomáš Halík will no longer be taking part in the event.
