Iva Procházková is an award winning Czech writer. Her father, Jan Procházka - also an author and a screenwriter was one of the opposition leaders during the Prague Spring '68. Due to political reasons, after graduating from a high school, Iva couldn't study any university and instead was restricted to manual labor. In fact she worked as a cook and a cleaning lady.

She ended up leaving in 1983, along with her husband, film director Ivan Pokorný. She spent eleven years in exile in Austria and Germany. Iva returned after the Velvet revolution and has been living and working in Prague for the past 20 years.

Iva has received many prestigious literary awards both in Germany and in the Czech Republic and she has been nominated for the Hans Christian Andersen and for the Astrid Lindgren Award. She wrote plays and books, the latter mainly for children and young people, with some of them gaining substantial recognition. After returning to the Czech Republic in 1995, she began to work together with Czech publishers such as Melantrich, Albatros, Amulet, Mladá Fronta, Arsci and others. She has worked for the Czech TV and is currently devoting all of her time to writing.

Free Admission, donations welcome.
