Celebrating a lost Czech novel

On June 18 New York’s Czech Center will be hosting the release of Heda Margolius Kovály’s novel, Innocence; or, Murder on Steep Street. Heda Margolius Kovály (1919-2010) is most famous for her memoir Under A Cruel Star – A Life in Prague 1941–1968 but in 1985 she wrote her crime novel, finally translated this year by Alex Zucker, who will read from it at the event. There will also be a conversation with editor and Soho Press Associate Publisher Juliet Grames. And there will be a beer and wine reception afterwards (Does anywhere else besides the Czech Center even have beer receptions?).
