Welcome to my Refugee Week Book Blog
From 17-23 June 2019, people around the world celebrated Refugee Week, raising awareness of the plight of millions of people around the globe and celebrating the contribution refugees bring to our society. As a regular volunteer for Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity, this is a topic that is close to my heart. With a passion for books, translation and an interest in the subject of refugees and migration, I want to share some of the books I’ve come across on the topic of refugees and migration. Some are novels, some are true stories and some are picture books. They serve not only to inform but to open conversations. I urge you, when you have finished reading one of these books, pass it to a friend, spread the message it gives.
