Amnesty International Book Club choice for April:
The Cellist of Sarajevo
(NC) Inspired by a real cellist who played music in bombed out buildings during the siege of Sarajevo, The Cellist of Sarajevo by British Columbia-based author Steven Gallowayis the Amnesty International Book Club recommendation for April.
This book is a story of survival, about the temptation to hate and the refusal to do so, about the persistence of the human spirit in a time of fear and suffering.
