Newzad Brifki, founder and director of the Kurdish Community of America organization, will read from his memoir, "My Journey to America, A Kurdish American Story." The book tells of the flight of Brifki's family from Sadaam Hussein's Iraq to a refugee camp in Turkey and to eventual resettlement in the United States.
A book signing will follow the visit at the Bismarck Public Library, and books will be available for purchase. All ages are welcome. The event will be held in Meeting Room B at 7 p.m. Thursday.
