Virtual Book Club

"Chasing A Croatian Girl"

For this first of two book clubs for 2020, we will be reading Professor Cody McClain Brown’s “Chasing A Croatian Girl.” This wonderful book is the story of Cody falling in love with a Croatian girl – eventually marrying her and moving to Croatia. He shares through the eyes of a foreigner, delightful stories about his new world: propuh, coffee, Croatian mother in laws, Croatian baby raising advice, neighbors and just overall life - sharing with his readers a hilarious first-hand account of the culture and heritage we all know so well!
Cody is currently a political science professor at the University of Zagreb, in Zagreb, Croatia where he lives with his wife and daughter. He has written two books about his Croatian life, wrote blogs for HRT and currently has his Propuh Podcast, available on his website:
The book is currently available in the US at or in all major bookstores in Croatia.
Cody will be joining us live from Zagreb, taking questions from you, the audience and sharing his experiences with host Joanne Abdo. RSVP via email to: For those who have reserved space, a Zoom meeting link will be emailed out Friday, September 18th to the email you provide. If you are unable to join us, fear not! This episode will be recorded and shown this year at our Virtual CroatiaFest 2020, October 4th.
