GWL Digital Reads is our online book group; a space for people from around the world to take part in discussions around books written by women and to engage with GWL even if they can’t make it through our doors. We read a new book from a diverse selection of genres every two months and discuss it in our GWL Digital Book Group on Facebook.
Our July and August Digital Reads book was The Ungrateful Refugee by Dina Nayeri and we’re excited to bring you a short interview with Dina, recorded after her event with Nick Thorpe at Edinburgh International Book Festival. The quality of the recording does not remain consistent throughout the interview so if you should have any problems understanding anything that is said, we have provided a transcript of the recording below.
The Ungrateful Refugee recalibrates the conversation around the refugee experience, looking at the real human stories of what it is like to be forced to flee your home, and to journey across borders in the hope of starting afresh.
