Soldiers, Gramophones, and Other Stories

The German Studies Department and the Center for the Humanities invite you to meet Bosnian-born German writer Saša Stanišic, who will read from his novel, How the Soldier Repairs the Gramophone, a very pictorial and linguistically inventive novel about the Balkan wars seen through the eyes of 14-year-old Aleksander, who has fled from the Bosnian town of Višegrad to Germany. In addition, Saša will present his latest works, accompanied by a lyrical photo essay.

Thursday, April 1, at 5:00 p.m. in Russell House. Reception to follow.
