Award-winning author Helen Benedict and Syrian writer and refugee Eyad Awwadawnan team up to present the stories of five refugees from the Middle East and Africa who fled violence or persecution only to become trapped in some of the world’s worst refugee camps in Greece. Map of Hope and Sorrow offers a rare insight into the lives of refugees. Both authors spent years getting to know the interviewees and winning their trust. The result is five powerful stories of resilience, suffering and hope.
Helen will be in conversation with Hala Gorani, an international journalist and television anchor.
