2018 MAY EVENTS in Washington, DC



Documentary: Vinyl Generation

On May 6, at 12 noon, Vinyl Generation will screen at House of Sweden as part of the EUROBEATS Music Festival. In 1980s Communist Czechoslovakia, an emerging generation took inspiration from alternative culture to create their own worldview, politics and eventually, a revolution. Twenty-five years later, this unique generational perspective is explored for the first time in this documentary. (Dir. Keith Jones, 2016, 73 min.) To RSVP, click here. Admission is free.  


Book Talk: Robinson w/Peter Sís

On May 6, at 5 pm, Politics and Prose will present award-winning book author Peter Sís and his book Robinson. In this children's book, Sís blends a true story from his childhood with the fictional adventure of Robinson Crusoe to create a magical picture book filled with heart and imagination that readers will want to return to again and again. Cast away in this beautiful dreamlike story and discover what surprises await. Peter Sís is a Hans Christian Andersen Award winner, three-time Caldecott Honoree, Sibert Award winner, and MacArthur Fellow. Admission is free. RSVPs are not required.
