Composed and Performed by Merima Ključo
Inspired by People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks

The Sarajevo Haggadah: Music of the Book creatively interprets this miraculous artifact as a universal symbol of exile, return and co-existence. The Haggadah, one of Jewish culture's most treasured manuscripts, traveled from medieval Spain to 20th- century Bosnia, where it was rescued and hidden by Muslims during World War II, to its restoration by the National Museum in Sarajevo after the 1992-95 war. Composer- performer Merima Ključo's stunning multimedia work for accordion, piano and video traces the harrowing journey. Stay afterward for a Q&A with author Geraldine Brooks. Copies of the book will be for sale before and after this presentation, and she will sign them.
