Czech’em Out Book Club

Czech’em Out Book Club meets on the third Monday of each month with NCSML volunteer Steve Pederson in the Skala Bartizal Library following the reading of each months selected book.

About this months book: Czech Touches

Skillfully compiled by a Cedar Rapids local, Pat Martin, the book literally touches on many aspects of Czech and Czech-American life, including history, famous personalities, folk artists, recipes and other areas.
