Writer in Residence Programme: Maja Gal Štromar conducts research in Sarajevo's archives

.

570 residenzIn August, the P.E.N. Centre of Bosnia and Herzegovina welcomed the author Maja Gal Štromar from Slovenia to the TRADUKI funded Writers in Residence programme. During her stay she did research in city's archives to find information on the death of her grandfather, who in 1941 was shot by the Gestapo in Sarajevo – an event that will serve as the foundation of her forthcoming novel.

Maja Gal Štromar was introduced to the readers on 4th September, during a literary event with Ahmed Burić, where she talked about her residency and her experiences as a writer and actress, and where she read excerpts from her book Misli name, ko ti je lepo [Think of Me, When You Are Well].
