LITERATURE: Literary Reportage: The Forensics of Crisis - NYC

Literary Reportage: The Forensics of Crisis brings together three authors who have come to the field of reportage from very different backgrounds.

 In his devastating book Like Eating a Stone: Surviving the Past in Bosnia, Warsaw-based journalist Wojciech Tochman follows both Polish forensic scientist Ewa Klonowska as she exhumes mass graves in Bosnia, and the families of the victims as they wait for their loved ones to be identified. 

The discussion will be followed by a wine and cheese reception, during which authors will sign their books, which will be available for purchase. 

This event is organized in conjunction with The Polish Book Institute’s exhibition at Book Expo America (Javits Center, Booth #2423).
