On Saturday, June 15, 2013, the Slovak American Society of Washington, D.C. (SASW) will sponsor a free, two-part talk by Prof. Joseph M. Samson, of Ferris State University, on:
SLOVAK FOLK ARCHITECTURE:
• TRADITIONAL HOMES AND VILLAGES
• VILLAGE WORSHIP SPACES
The talk will be held in the Second-Floor Meeting Room of the Arlington Central Library, 1015 N. Quincy St., Arlington, VA (located midway between the Virginia Square/GMU and Ballston/MU Metro stations).

The "Traditional Homes and Villages" portion will start at 1:30PM, and "Village Worship Spaces" will start at 3:00PM.

Prof. Samson will look at regional variations in Slovak homes and villages, and at the unique vernacular church architecture that arose in response to various limitations imposed by the Habsburg government.
