An Afternoon with Editors Sibylla Brodzinsky and Max Schoening


Editors Sibylla Brodzinsky and Max Schoening will read from their new book Throwing Stones at the Moon: Narratives from Colombians Displaced by Violence. For nearly five decades, Colombia has been embroiled in internal armed conflict among guerrilla groups, paramilitary militias, and the country's own armed forces. Civilians in Colombia face a range of abuses from all sides, including killings, disappearances, and rape--and more than four million have been forced to flee their homes. The oral histories in Throwing Stones at the Moon describe the most widespread consequence of Colombia's human rights crisis: forced displacement. Narrators recount life before displacement, the reasons for their flight, and their struggle to rebuild their lives. Throwing Stones at the Moon is the tenth book in the Voice of Witness book series. Voice of Witness is a nonprofit book series published by McSweeney's that illuminates contemporary human rights crises through oral history storytelling.
