Bosnian writer Faruk Šehić is our special guest for a discussion of his latest book “Quiet Flows the Una” – the story of a man trying to overcome the personal trauma cause by the war in his country between 1992 and 1995.
The novel has won the EU Prize for Literature, as well as the Meša Selimovič Prize for the best novel published in Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro and Croatia in 2011.
Faruk Šehić is a veteran of the conflict and an engaging speaker. His work is a poetic, witty and wistful mediation on the beauty of nature and the cruelty of war.
Join us for coffee and tea on Thursday 31 March from 17.00 in advance of the discussion, which will begin promptly at 18.00 in the auditorium and last about an hour. There will be a Q&A session after which there will be a drinks reception.
This event has been arranged in collaboration with Istros Books. Copies of the book in English translation will be available for purchase.
Registration for this event is now closed.
