This Zoom event will introduce Agneša Kalinová (1924-2014) – a Slovak-Jewish journalist, film critic and translator. Agneša’s fascinating story has been captured in Mojich sedem životov, a book-length conversation conducted by the Slovak playwright, writer and social activist Jana Juránová, which was published by the feminist publishing house ASPEKT in 2012. Translated into Czech, German and Hungarian, this captivating narrative will be published by Purdue University Press as My Seven Lives on 15 October 2021.
Agneša’s daughter, Julia Sherwood (who has translated the book into English with her husband Peter), will join the conversation from London and the book’s co-author and Agneša’s interlocutor Jana Juránová will speak from Bratislava. They will be interviewed by Peter Brod, Agneša’s former colleague from Radio Free Europe, who now lives in Prague.
The event is a part of lecture series Literature by and about Czech and Slovak Jews organized by the Society for the History of Czechoslovak Jews and Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Sciences, New York Chapter, with support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic and Bohemian Benevolent and Literary Association.
The lecture will be streamed on ZOOM, recorded and available on YouTube.
