World Wide Wednesday: "A Year in Slovakia," presented by Carrie Fathman
Free, all ages, 6:30 p.m.
Attendance: 27 people
St. Louisan Carrie Fathman spent a year (2001-2002) in Slovakia as a Fulbright Scholar. Now back in St. Louis, she'll be describing both her research (into restitution, small-scale land ownership, sustainable agriculture and more, related to the country's emergence from a Communist past) and her experiences of the people and daily life in Slovakia. This is Fathman's first St. Louis talk on the subject; she'll read some of her journal writings about her experience, project digital photographs and provide delightful Slovakian backup music for the entire affair. The staff and volunteers of The Commonspace are launching their own ambitious contribution: makovy kolac (poppy-seed layer torte). Please join us, and bring a friend!
