From former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright comes a moving and thoughtful memoir of her formative years in Czechoslovakia during the tumult of Nazi occupation, World War II, fascism, and the onset of the Cold War. An intensely personal journey into the past that offers vital lessons for the future, Prague Winter combines the intimacy of an autobiography with the drama of an exciting and well-told story–all underpinned by the gravity and intelligence of a serious work of history. The result is a highly readable and incisive work filled with tragedy and triumph, a resonant narrative informed by Albright’s remarkable life experience and her characteristic candor in speaking hard truths.

“I was totally blown away by this book. It is a breathtaking combination of the historical and the personal. Albright confronts the brutal realities of the Holocaust and the conflicted moral choices it led to. An unforgettable tale of fascism and communism, courage and realism, families and heartache and love.” — Walter Isaacson

Have you tried to sign up for the fiction workshop with renowned novelist / memoirist Ann Hood and been told it’s full?

Topics at the Writers Institute are big; class size is not. “We keep the workshops small for a reason,” says the Director of the Center for Literature and Theatre at MDC, Alina Interián. “The ability to sit across the table from an author is invaluable. In fact, the opportunity for our participants to interact with our faculty is one of the best and most unique things about the Institute.”

Still-Available Workshops Include:

Poetry, with Marylyn Nelson

Writing for Book Deals, with Ryan Harbage

Writing About Place, People, and the World, with Dinty W. Moore

Memoir, with Da Chen

Crime Fiction, with SJ Rozan

Combine these topics with seminars on How To Get Published Successfully, with Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sterry, manuscript consultations with top literary agents, and the always-lively Pitch-O-Rama and you’ve got one heck of an opportunity headed your way—but, only if you sign up!
