We are pleased to announce, in conjunction with the Croatian
Society at Imperial College London, a major CSYPN
event on Thursday, 26th February.
We are delighted that Robin Harris, author of the acclaimed
'Dubrovnik: A History' will be giving a talk to us about the
"Pearl of the Adriatic", followed by a Q&A session.
This will be one of the most important Croatian events in
London this year. Robin Harris is one of Croatia's
greatest friends. He was one of Margaret Thatcher's closest
policy advisers and informed her on Croat matters.
We expect you all to come to this event, and to bring
friends - especially your British ones!
The event is free. It will begin at 7.00pm. Doors open
at 6.45. Full address and directions below.
Greatly discounted copies of 'Dubrovnik - A History'
will be available at the event for the price of £15 - down
from £25. You will also have an opportunity to chat to
Mr Harris and get you copy signed.
Please send us your name and those of your guests to
firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, 22nd February.
Furthermore, if you wish to secure your copy of the
book, let us know in your email.
We expect to see you all there!
