Vail Valley: Avon library starts book group

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL VALLEY, Colorado – The Avon Public Library’s nonfiction book group begins Oct. 22 with a discussion of “The Translator” by Daoud Hari at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Hari grew up in the Darfur region of Sudan and managed to escape when his village was destroyed by militia groups. He returned to offer his services as a translator to UN investigators and journalists.

The publisher describes “The Translator” as a “remarkable story of a man who came face-to-face with genocide – time and again risking his own life to fight injustice and save his people”.

For questions or to reserve a copy of the book, call the Avon Public Library at 970-949-6797.

This book was selected to support Colorado Mountain College’s Common Reader program. The author will be at Battle Mountain High School at 7 p.m. on Nov. 6. For more information on Hari’s visit, call Colorado Mountain College at 970-569-2900.
