Event description

Description

Blackwell's is delighted to welcome to the bookshop Dina Nayeri who will be discussing her powerful and thought-provoking book ‘The Ungrateful Refugee'.

In ‘The Ungrateful Refugee' Dina Nayeri weaves together the story of her own refugee journey - as a child forced to flee Iran, eventually finding asylum in America - with the stories of others making their own journeys today. She sets out the stages of the refugee experience, and gives voice to those in today's refugee camps, or who are trying to settle in a new country, and for many of whom the search for home can be a forever state.

Dina Nayeri was born in Iran during the revolution and arrived in America when she was ten years old. She is the winner of a National Endowment for the Arts Grant, an O. Henry Award and the UNESCO City of Literature Paul Engle Prize. The author of two novels - Refuge and A Teaspoon of Earth and Sea - and contributor to The Displaced, her work has been published in over twenty countries. Her stories and essays have been published in Best American Short Stories and by the New York Times, Guardian, Wall Street Journal, Granta and many other publications.

Tickets for this event are £5. Doors will open at 6.45pm when there will be a small bar available to purchase drinks until 7pm. For all enquiries please email events.oxford@blackwell.co.uk or call our Customer Service Department on 01865 333623.
