Signing/Readings
"Luck Follows the Brave: From Refugee Camps, Abuse, and Suicide Loss to Living the Dream" Book Signing with Author Aida Sibic
Local author, Aida Sibic, recently wrote a soul-stirring, unforgettable memoir called "Luck Follows the Brave: From Refugee Camps, Abuse, and Suicide Loss to Living the Dream" about how she and her family survived the genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the ‘90s and then started a whole new life as refugees in California. Sibic candidly discusses her own harrowing and traumatic refugee experience, as well as the long-term effects PTSD and trauma leaves on its survivors. She shares the pain that her family experienced when her beloved mother lost her life to suicide in 2013 and the crucial lessons and warning signs of suicide that they all learned because of the tragedy. In honor of her mother, Sibic and her powerful memoir are here to inspire and provide hope and strength for those who are coping with grief, loss, or trauma. Sibic will be signing copies of her memoir on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, Village Square at Dana Park in Mesa. Sibic's book is also available on Amazon. To reach Aida Sibic directly, email her at luckfollowsthebrave@gmail.com
