City of Thorns Book Discussion
January 19 @ 5:00 pm
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.
