Join NCSML volunteer Steve Pederson in the Skala Bartizal Library this month where we’ll discuss Cowboy from Prague by Charles Heller, with the author joining the discussion virtually. Czech’em Out Book Club meets on the third Monday of each month following the reading of each months selected book.
About the book
After losing 25 members of their family in the Holocaust, the author and his parents escape a brutal Communist regime in Czechoslovakia, transforming themselves in a single day from one of their native country’s wealthiest families to stateless refugees with all their assets contained in three suitcases. Cowboy from Prague is a tender, enthralling, compelling, and powerful story that will resonate with all Americans who, together, make up a nation unique in the world–a nation of immigrants.
