On Thursday, May 15th, World Concerts and The Book Loft present a screening of the award-winning documentary Miss Sarajevo, with author and filmmaker Bill Carter, at the Grange Hall in Los Olivos, starting at 8:00 pm. Produced by Bono (of U2 fame), Miss Sarajevo is a surreal and startling portrait of Bosnia’s capital city during the height of the city’s siege. Instead of following the scenes of carnage that the mainstream media so often squeezes into thirty second dramatic sound bites, Carter’s camera follows the alternative scene of artists, youths, and the people determined to live as normal a life as they can under the most difficult and dangerous conditions. The Grange Hall is located at 2374 Alamo Pintado Avenue, in Los Olivos. Coffee, snacks, & refreshments will be served.
On Friday, May 16th, at 7:00 pm, Bill Carter will be signing his books at The Book Loft, located at 1680 Mission Drive, in Solvang. There will be wine, snacks, & refreshments for the public. For more information, call Erin Humphrey at (805) 403-1878 or The Book Loft at (805) 688-6010.
