Refugee stories we have shared with you here for the past two years will now be available in a 332-page book, Let Me Tell You My Story, available in October. Spare, haunting, and profoundly human, this inspiring collection creates a composite portrait of the greatest humanitarian crisis of modern history. It is a volume to which readers will refer for its aesthetic beauty, its impressive scope, its instructional value, and its unapologetic honesty.
Let Me Tell You My Story is already drawing praise:
With no political power, refugees are often left without a voice. Let Me Tell You My Story helps refugees reclaim some power and dignity by giving them a platform to tell their stories. It is a meaningful and important collection.
Brandon Stanton, Author of The New York Times #1 bestseller, Humans of New York
The poignant stories and compelling images in this volume provide a powerful counterpoint to the dehumanization of people on the move in Europe and around the world. Highly recommended.
Dr. Reece Jones, Author of Violent Borders: Refugees and the Right to Move
These simple stories speak volumes about the plight of refugees around the world. Through paintings and photographs, full of beauty and dignity we are privileged to meet real people living the tragedy of refugee life. They are school children, wives and mothers, musicians, journalists, teachers, husbands and fathers. They are African, Asian, Middle Eastern. They are of the world we share. Their loss is palpable and their courage and a yearning to be free shines through on the page. With this book comes hope and a way for readers of all ages to share the emotion and trauma of refugee life and to recognize our shared humanity.
