Mon 12th November 18:30 – Guided tour of the Polish Library and lecture by Pierre Caquet: Four Perspectives and a Funeral, the burial of Czechoslovakia at Munich 1938
Pierre Caquet (Hughes Hall, Cambridge) has recently published “The Bell of Treason: The 1938 Munich Agreement in Czechoslovakia”. The reviews are glowing: “Places the entire concept of appeasement in a new light” : “The threats, the negotiations, the upheaval, the awful outcome”: “This is completely different”.
On Monday 12th November Pierre will be lecturing and taking questions on this fascinating topic, at the little known but very interesting Polish Library, 6 Quai d’Orleans, Ile St Louis. Prior to the lecture there will be a guided tour of the Library. Drinks will follow the lecture, during which time Pierre will be happy to sign any copies of the book that anyone may have brought to the lecture. Price (including lecture, tour and drinks) €15 per person. Please use the booking form attached or complete the response section below and return it to Tony Banton no later than Friday 9th November. Payment can be by bank transfer (and electronic response) or by cheque if you send your form to Tony by post.
