Turn the Page – Escaping War: What We Can Learn from Stories of the Syrian Refugee Crisis
More than a book club, Turn the Page becomes an agent for change, an evolution in thought brought about by a conversation with authors who have their fingers on the pulse of history, so therefore insight in the human heart. Each segment will bring two of our winning authors together to discuss a subject their works have in common. Gilbert King, a DLPP Honorary Advisory Board member, the 2013 DLPP Runner-up for The Devil in the Grove and the Pulitzer Prize winner for the same title, will moderate the segments.
The next Turn the Page event scheduled for April 21, 2022, at 7:00 PM EDT will feature a discussion between Jordan Ritter Conn, the 2021 Nonfiction Runner-up for The Road From Raqqa: A Story of Brotherhood, Borders, and Belonging, and Christy Lefteri, the 2020 Nonfiction Runner-up for The Beekeeper of Aleppo. Both authors tell intimate stories of Syrian refugees fleeing their war-torn homeland.
Register here to attend the seventh Turn the Page event, Escaping War: What We Can Learn from Stories of the Syrian Refugee Crisis with Jordan Ritter Conn & Christy Lefteri.
A Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants from Zoom ([email protected]) on April 20, 2022.
