Prague Writers' Festival heating up the stage

The 21st Prague Writers’ Festival gets underway on Saturday, April 16 with a thematic title of Some Like it Hot (thus, the photo from Antonín Kratochvíl's book "Moscow Nights").Guests this year include Don DeLillo, Derek Walcott, Petra Hůlová, Junot Díaz and Iraqi poet Saadi Yousef among many others. The conversations are always the best part of the festival and some of the titles of this year's include - "How hot was the cold war?" and "Unscrew your navel, and what's the consequence?" Be impulsive! Go buy a plane ticket (unless you already live in Prague), post your arrival time in the comments and I'll try to pick you up at the airport.
