The first of a series of Salusbury World Talks, this is an opportunity to hear author Gulwali Passarlay in conversation.
Gulwali was sent away from Afghanistan at the age of twelve after his father was killed. He made a year's odyssey, spending time in prisons, suffering hunger, making a terrifying journey across the Mediterranean in a tiny boat and spending a month in the notorious Calais "Jungle" before reaching Britain.
Gulwali, having recently graduated from Manchester University, is now a powerful advocate for the rights of refugees.
His book of his journey called "The Lightless Sky" has been widely acclaimed. It gives its readers an extraordinary insight into the reality of one of the central stories of our times.
Salusbury World is a local charity which works to empower refugee and migrant children and families.
This event is in association with Queen's Park Books and there will be an opportunity to purchase a copy of 'The Lightless Sky''.
There will be an appeal for fundraising to support the increasingly vital work of Salusbury World.
