  • Present TALC language club is a special public presentation dedicated to World Press Freedom Day, celebrated worldwide on May 3rd. To celebrate this event, the American Corner Budapest each year organizes a program related to writing, books, newspapers or literature in general. The guest speaker of the evening is LEROY LAD PANEK who will shed light on how newspapers and books invented the detective story. Access to on-line archives of hundreds of historical newspapers, such as the Library of Congress' Chronicling America website, offers new insights into why Americans wrote detective stories. Reading those old newspapers reveals how the Bill of Rights, modern commerce, the creation of police forces, the beginning of forensic science, and universal literacy (with a bit of Vidocq, Edgar Allan Poe, and Charles Dickens thrown in) created the detective story.
