Be there as bestselling author Kenan Trebincevic discusses the inspiration behind his book, The Bosnia List A Memoir of War, Exile and Return. Trebincevic is speaking at the Bob Kirby Branch on Thursday, March 22 at 7:00 p.m. Barnes & Noble will have books available for purchase at the event.
At age eleven, Kenan Trebincevic was a happy, karate-loving kid living with his family in the quiet Eastern European town of Brcko. Then, in the spring of 1992, war broke out and his friends, neighbors and teammates all turned on him. Pero - Kenan’s beloved karate coach - showed up at his door with an AK-47 - screaming: “You have one hour to leave or be killed!” Kenan’s only crime: he was Muslim. This poignant, searing memoir chronicles Kenan’s miraculous escape from the brutal ethnic cleansing campaign that swept the former Yugoslavia.
“The great instruction of this important work is the author’s moral transformation that helped him replace hate with grace, if not forgiveness.” --- Publishers Weekly
