The Czech/American Reading Circle

The Nebraska Czechs of Lincoln are proud to sponsor the Czech/American Reading Circle.  Started in January, 2019, the Reading Circle shares significant books about, by, for, and important to, people of Czech Heritage.  Attendees are not required to have read the book being discussed, however, it helps to have some familiarity with it, and we encourage participants to contribute any relevant information they may have.

Please join us!  The circle meets the last Tuesday of each month except December at 6:15 pm central time on ZOOM.  Everyone is welcome.  Please contact organizer Lois Rood or any Board Member for additional information.

The Czech/American Reading Circle will begin its fourth year of great books on Tuesday, January 25, 2022.  The book to be discussed will be          My Crazy Century by Ivan Klima. This autobiography covers Klima's view of happenings in the Czech lands from the 1930s through the Velvet Revolution. Our discussion leader will be Deb Polacek, who is an active member of the South-Central Nebraska Czechs, the Milligan Czech Brass Band, and the Czech Language Foundation, and who was one of the leading organizers of the First Annual St. Wenceslas Brewfest held in conjunction with the Czech Embassy this past September.
