Oldřich Pavlovský is a Czech engineer and publisher. He studied automated control systems in Brno University of Technology. In the professional career he was engaged in foreign trade in Czech and large multinational corporations. His hobby has always been literature, therefore, he tried to search Czech traces in all countries – and besides Gashek, Chapek, Kundera or Hrabal, these traces were quite insignificant. Therefore, at the end of 2015 Oldřich Pavlovský together with the agency DB by Dana Blatna decided to launch Pálava Publishing – the publishing house, aimed at the publication of Czech authors in English, that puts emphasis on the development of functional book marketing, which would help Czech writers to open the door to success abroad.
At the Book Arsenal Festival, Pavlovský will tell about the book marketing in Czech Republic.
