Re: [S-R] Fall Issue of Slovakia Colorful!
- Colorful illustrations from Slovak fairy tales grace the front and back covers of the fall issue of Slovakia magazine which includes a feature story on a Slovak story teller in America; a book review by Julie Michutka; Slovak funeral customs by Sylvia Marcinko Chai; and a story on Slovakia's famed cuvac dogs that guard the sheep in the salas.
The center full-color spread highlights a Slovak folk artist and his renditions of life in eastern Slovakia at the turn of the century and in another feature - a dozen photos from the trip to Velka Lesna in the Tatras (25 Americans with roots in the tiny mt. village were greeted so warmly by the villagers on a fwonderfully festive weekend). A film crew from Hollywood/Slovakia is making a movie of the trip.
Slovakia is published quarterly by the Slovak Heritage & Folklore Society International; 88 issues published in the past 22 years. If you would like a copy
