City of Thorns Book Discussion

January 19 @ 5:00 pm

Location:   Norwich Inn, New Hampshire

Date:  January 19, 2019; 5:00 pm

RefugePoint’s Amy Slaughter will facilitate a book discussion on City of Thorns in the Upper Valley of New Hampshire.  The book is an intimate and gripping portrayal of nine individuals who live in the Daadaab refugee camp in Kenya, the largest refugee camp in the world. The author, Ben Rawlence, worked as a researcher for Human Rights Watch in Africa, and has interwoven into the narrative the historical background of conflicts in the Horn of Africa that drive people to the camps. The book also reveals the politics that motivate or stymie response by international humanitarian agencies.

This is a NEID members-only event. Please contact us at neid@neidonors.org if you would like to attend or learn more about the event.
