Letters to Barbra by Paul Chaderjian has been recently published in the US and will be presented at two events in February – in Fresno and Glendale.
Letters to Barbra begins as an epistolary, offering readers rare insight into the mind of a 9-year-old experiencing a devastating civil war and finding solace by writing fan letters to a Hollywood legend. It is an homage to all the frightened little boys and girls caught in inhumane situations as adults kill each other over real estate, financial gain, power, ego and religion. It is also a requiem to the millions of lives lost and generations of survivors traumatized by man’s inhumanity against man.
