Jiří Peňás: Excursions for the Senior and Advanced
- Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
- When: January 27, 2020, 19:00 – 21:00
A fun evening bordering on a variety show for the senior and advanced.
The book with the Hrabalesque title Výpravy pro starší a pokročilé (Excursions for the Senior and Advanced) brings together a collection of weekly travel essays that Jiří Peňás wrote for the magazine Týdeník Echo. In its way it is a unique portrait of a world near at hand and further afield, growing out of a journey that cannot be halted. The texts blend personal experience with history, history of art and politics and romance with humour (for the most part bitter and melancholic).
Participants will include close friends of Jiří Peňás, who will himself host.
For more details, a personal journey is recommended.
