‘A Country to Call Home’ presented by Lucy Popescu, Patrice Lawrence & Sita Brahmachari
From the editor of A Country of Refuge comes an anthology of stories, flash fiction, poetry and original artwork from some of our finest children’s writers on one of the defining issues of our time. Focusing on the fate of refugee children and young adults, there are tales of home and missing it; poems about dangerous journeys and life in refugee camps; stories about prejudice, but also stories of children’s fortitude, their dreams and aspirations. It implores us to build bridges, not walls and is intended as a reminder of our shared humanity, seeking to challenge the negative narratives that so often cloud our view of vulnerable young people, and prevent us giving them the empathy they deserve.
