Plenty to Look Forward to

This year, the Prague Literature Festival saw one of its most revered guests of all time making an appearance - Orhan Pamuk, a critically acclaimed Turkish Author. The creator of the festival, Michael March, spoke about some of the issues that would be raised by the event, saying:

"How are nations born, destroyed or misused? How are they created? What does it take to create a nation? Does it take a war? Violence? Sitting down at the peace table? Smoking the peace pipe? How are nations really created? That goes for the question of Czechoslovakia in 1918."
