Join us on Saturday, February 18, 2023, at 10:00AM for a presentation and discussion on Zoom
From Czechs in the World to Czechs in Texas: Community History, Language, and Identity
The presenters will review the historical waves of Czech emigration around the world and focus on the language and culture in the historically Czech communities in the US, with the case in point being Texas, one of the long-lasting strongholds of Czech life in the New World. They will share new publications and collaborative research initiatives including the fascinating 19th century inter-continental communication of two brothers and the Texas Czech Legacy Project.
Join us for monthly literary presentations and small-group informal discussions of Czech and Slovak books in English translation. Authors of books include: Milan Kundera, Ivan Klima, Former President Vaclav Havel and several more.
Everyone is welcome. Discussions are cosponsored by the Czech and Slovak Cultural Center of Minnesota, Office of the Honorary Consul of the Czech Republic, and Czech & Slovak Sokol Minnesota. Book discussions are held from 10:00 a.m.-noon online. If you would like to participate, please email email@example.com for the meeting link.
Do you want to practice your Czech? All ages and levels of Czech language welcome. Meet others who have traveled to the Czech Republic, studied, lived, or grew up there. Monthly meetings, every third Saturday of the month, 4 PM to 5:00 PM.
The Czech and Slovak Cultural Center of Minnesota is a non-profit organization, inspired by Václav Havel’s challenge to build a “civil society” in which we each take practical concrete steps toward realizing the ideals of mutual respect and understanding.
