Book Discussion: War Torn

Worn Torn: Stories of Courage, Love and Resilience - a book reading by author Kenneth Miller. Ken is a former member of this congregation. War Torn brings us intimately into the lives of civilians who have survived wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, Guatemala, and Sri Lanka. Alongside stories that convey the destruction and heartbreak of armed conflict, Miller captures the courage and resilience he calls “a remarkable kind of light,” an essential counterpoint to the grief and trauma that war creates.

Ken is a psychologist and international expert on the impact of armed conflict on civilians, has been working with war-affected communities since 1991 as a researcher, clinician, organizational consultant, and filmmaker. A professor of clinical and community psychology for much of his career, in 2015 he joined the Dutch NGO War Child Holland and is currently based in Amsterdam. Ken is a regular contributor to Psychology Today and the Huffington Post, and is a frequent guest on national radio shows. Learn more at his web site: www.kennethemiller.com.
