Book signing by Jordan Steven Sher March 2


Oneida County History Center in Utica, in partnership with the Bosnian American Community Association of Utica, will host a presentation and book signing by author Jordan Steven Sher at 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 2.

Sher’s recently published book, “And Still We Rise: A Novel about the Genocide in Bosnia,” focuses on universal lessons of rhetoric, and resilience. In this story the protagonists resettle in Utica, which is home to thousands of Bosnian immigrants.

Author Sher’s mission is to enlighten those unfamiliar with the genocidal campaign/war by the nationalist Bosnian Serbs and its aftermath, and to warn about the dangers of authoritarian regimes that target specific groups in their quest for and to maintain power.

Sher is a former social worker (MSW; University of Albany), and teacher who is committed to allying with those in the U.S. and abroad who seek to bring truth and justice to the narrative of denial and revisionism that is embedded in Serbia and the Republika Srpska.

The Oneida County History Center is a private, not-for-profit educational institution dedicated to preserving the history, heritage, and culture of the Greater Mohawk Valley for present and future generations.

Admission to the program is free; donations are encouraged.
