Havel Conversations Live: Cocktail with Wendy Luers

benefit reception

May 22, 2018 , 5:30 - 6:30 pm

[3rd Floor]

Cocktail reception with Wendy Luers, human rights activist and non-profit leader, founder of Vaclav Havel Library Foundation, diplomatic spouse, and pre-revolution Prague resident. Join us to support the future Havel Conversations.

HAVEL CONVERSATIONS is an oral history initiative in which politicians, academics, writers, and artists, including George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, and Madeleine Albright present firsthand memories of Havel, his colleagues, and the historical events he inspired. Equally important, they constitute a highly interesting set of statements on social and political issues affecting Americans and Europeans today. With deep political and social shifts taking place on both sides of the Atlantic, our interviewees intertwined their memories of Havel with questions about human rights, morality, and the decline of democratic values. The interviews reveal how much Havel continues to inspire thinking people today, and they will help spread knowledge of his life as an example of peaceful resistance and the importance of civic education.The interviews are hosted online by Florida International University and can be accessed from the Vaclav Havel Library Foundation website.

Support the future of HAVEL CONVERSATIONS!
