More than Words
- Where: Frankfurt Book Fair, Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1, Frankfurt am Main
- When: October 18, 2019, 12:00 – 14:00
This year’s edition of the biggest international book fair will take place from October 16 to 20. Alongside a stand presenting the Czech Republic, which will be honouring Václav Havel, Havel’s famous speech Words on Words will also be remembered.
In October 1989 Václav Havel received the Peace Prize of the German Booksellers Association, which he was unable to accept in person. The speech he wrote on that occasion dedicated to the power of words and their responsible usage is no less topical today.
Can we learn from history? What kind of power do words possess?
Discussion guests: Alexander Alexejewitsch Drozdow, Hans Maier a Michael Žantovský
