Fatima Bhutto and Dina Nayeri in conversation

Join authors Fatima Bhutto and Dina Nayeri as they discuss their new books: The Runaways and The Ungrateful Refugee ahead of Refugee Week 2019.

A bold new novel from bestselling Pakistani author Fatima Bhutto, The Runaways follows the lives of three very different characters whose fates cross paths in the desert attempting to escape the secrets of their past.

Dina Nayeri weaves together her own story of fleeing Iran at the age of 8 with those of refugees more recently uprooted.The Ungrateful Refugee explores the realities of journeying across borders in the hope of a fresh start—and the emotions involved at each stage of these deeply personal journeys, from escape to asylum and resettlement.

Both authors will discuss their new works with broadcaster and journalist Georgina Godwin. The event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
