1990s Prague Through American Eyes

talk 21 May, 2019 - 7:00 PM

A journey back in time to 1990s Prague with its decaying facades, unexplored commercial opportunities, and the cultural scene that was resurging after forty years of oppression. The neuroscientist and entrepreneur Andre Fenton, the speechwriter and strategic communications adviser for IBM Rob Lewis, and Maura Griffin, co-founder of The Globe Bookstore & Coffeehouse and a former Prague Post reporter, will share their experience of living in Prague in the years that followed the 1989 Velvet Revolution. Moderated by Vera Dvorak.


The talk is followed by Q&A and a light reception.
