Event description

Description

Described from the perspective of a child victim, The Solace of Trees is the lesser-told story of the tragedy of war, from the Bosnian War to the US policy of government-sponsored abductions. A tale shared by countless victims in countless times and places, The Solace of Trees is at once a page-turner and a work of beauty and insight. It is a sobering look at a hidden cost of war and an affirmation of the human spirit from those who survive the ordeal.

Author Robert Madrygin spent his early years in postwar Japan, where his father, a US military lawyer, defended the rights of Japanese POWs. Numerous moves followed across the US and Europe. As an adult Madrygin lived with his wife and three children in Ecuador and Barcelona. He built a successful business and yet worked also in India managing a worldwide holistic conference in post-Tsunami Thailand. In spring of this year Robert visited Bosnia and Herzegovina. He and his wife live in Brattleboro, Vermont.
