Author Newzad Brifki To Visit Fargo Library Wednesday, June 28

Local author Newzad Brifki will visit the downtown Main Library at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 28, for a presentation featuring his recently published memoir My Journey to American: A Kurdish American Story. Brifki’s book tells of his family’s flight from from Saddam Hussein’s Iraq to a refugee camp in Turkey, and of their eventual resettlement in the United States. It is the story of his successful struggles, leading to a degree in business administration from Minnesota State University Moorhead in 2008 and a feeling of peace with his identity as a new American. A book signing will follow the event; books will be available for purchase. For details, contact the Main Library Information Desk at 701.241.1492 or email

This event is part of the library’s “Build a Better World” summer reading program for adults, which runs through August 5.
