Hungarian Library’s November update

Betti, Julcsi, Panni – the Librarians

Hope you enjoyed a fun Halloween! One of our librarians participated in her very first Pumpkin Race! Her racer was called Hungarian Princess. The name was inspired by Sissy, Empress Elisabeth of Austria. Even though Sissy wasn’t technically a princess, the librarian had to give in to the push of her 5-year-old daughter, who wanted to follow the Disney tradition. 🙂

Hungarian Princess won one heat. The photo was taken after the race, hence the somewhat worn-out appearance.

There were two “Trunk with Books” events in October, both in Crossroads Park. We had a good turnout, and books for kids and grown-ups found their readers.

Cultural news

On November 2nd is All Souls’ Day in Hungary. At the end of October we sadly had to say good bye to two famous actors. Vera Venczel was everybody’s favorite Vicuska from the movie adaptation of Géza Gárdonyi’s novel Egri csillagok. Sándor Oszter gained popularity with his tv role of the betyár (Hungarian outlaw) of Sándor Rózsa.
