In March 1945 Hugo Vavrečka wrote his for grandson Ivan M. Havel PohádkaO králi Škrábalovi čili Ivanovi krasopisci(A Fairy Tale About KingŠkrábal, or Ivan Krasopicec). Soon afterwards the text disappeared in the swirl of post-war events and only now has it reached its intended reader, over 70 years later, in connection with celebrations of Ivan M. Havel’s 80thbirthday.
The book will be presented, and congratulations conveyed, by Jana Wohlmuth Markupová, who rediscovered the book in the Baťaarchive in Zlín and prepared the new edition, illustrator Jan Laštovička, editor Pavel Hájek and many others.
How to reach the roof: find the Střecha Lucerny bell opposite the entrance to Lucerna’s Grand Hall; after being buzzed in, take the paternoster to the fourth floor and proceed on foot to the fifth.
