Princeton Book Salon for “The Boy with a Bamboo Heart.”

When: January 20, 2016


Princeton, New Jersey

“A riveting, wrenching and inspiring account of a life’s journey. Dr. Amporn’s remarkable story is not about childhood survival or war-time battles, rather a life-long struggle to defeat his demons and transform his fate.” Nelson Rand, author and journalist.

This event inaugurates a series of Book Salons to be held in private homes or venues hosted to be announced throughout the year. These smaller more intimate events are intended to foster more in-depth conversations about the book.

Should you be interested in attending such an event, please email me at chantal.jauvin@gmail.com. The decision to invite additional guests will be at the host’s discretion.

Copies of the book will be available for sale at the Book Salons. All author proceeds are being donated to the FORDEC charity.

Thank you to the hosts for their generosity in holding these events.
