Presentation: The Václav Havel Library

October 14, 2013, 7:00 PM

CANCELLATION: Due to the government shutdown, this event has been cancelled. Representatives from the Václav Havel Library had expected to be in Washington in connection to the screenings at the National Gallery of Art.

Executive Director of the Václav Havel Library, Marta Smolíková, will present an inside look at the prestigious presidential library during a presentation at the Czech Embassy on October 14, at 7 pm. The Václav Havel Library functions as a center for the documentation and research of modern Czech history, with an emphasis on promoting the ideas and works of Havel: playwright, fighter against totalitarianism, leader of the 1989 Velvet Revolution, Czechoslovak and Czech president, and a symbol of vigilance against despotism. The event includes the opening of the photo exhibition Genius Loci Hrádeček by Bohdan Holomíček. The exhibition presents a personal view inside the life of Havel at his cottage in the village of Hrádeček. Learn more about this unique library in the heart of Europe and see Havel through the eyes of a beloved friend.
