Na zemi i nad morom
by Milan Jakubec

Book launching evening at SCIC

On May 21, 1997 SCIC with co-operation with SCNC, co-sponsored a rare and very exciting event for Slovaks in Canada - a book launching. There is nothing new about books being written and published, but when the author is Slovak and living in Canada, its a major event!

The event was well attended by both close friends, well wishers and general public who not only wanted to greet the author, Milan Jakubec, but also wanted to extend their personal greetings on this special occasion. For Milan Jakubec, its a life long dream come true, to finally put his autobiographical life experiences in a book so that he can share his life's experiences with all Slovaks.

Presented here are some of the highlights of this very special May 21, 1997 evening:
