Simon Mawer: Prague Spring

The British writer Simon Mawer will talk about his latest book Prague Spring, a complex love story set amid the drama of 1968, and his fascination with Czech history. Mawer's novel Mendel´s Dwarf, inspired by Gregor Mendel, one of the fathers of genetics and the abbot of a Brno monastery, was followed by another Brno story, the Man Booker Prize shortlisted The Glass Room revolving around Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's famous Villa Tugendhat. With Prague Spring Mawer transfers his focus to Prague and the period of the Soviet-led invasion in August 1968, once again poignantly capturing the lives of people who are caught up in the wheels of history. Chaired by David Vaughan.
