|Mila Filipović, born by chance in Uzice, in 1962. Since then, she turned down a path, and delved into the magic of the magical radio box, naively forgetting that only a moment is magical and that magic is easily rejected. Graduate in journalism from Belgrade University, she took part in creation of many radio shows, and was a director of Radio Uzice from 1991 till 1995. She outgrew all her naiveté with the desire to fly and fly away over the big waters, without fear of leaving traces, ready to be an emotional immigrant. From April 1, 1996. she lives and works in Chicago as a contributor to "Vesti" daily (Chicago), magazine "Kisobran" (Canada) and "Sloboda". She preserved her language and writing inclination, staying faithful to only that love. Apart from journalism, she continues to write literature - soon to come a collection of short stories "Parts of myself" and collection of interviews from the US - "Crossword Puzzle".).|
|With her best friend, Snezana Boskovic, in October of year 2000, she published a novel "Concentric Circles", "about those that left and for those that can read". The book has been written during her first 3 years in the US, and talks about dilemmas of leaving, searching and not finding. |
