EAST BAY BOOKSELLERS welcomes Kim Malcolm to the store to discuss her book, A Country Within: A Journey of Love and Hope During the Refugee Crisis in Greece, on Thursday, May 24th at 7pm.
A Country Within shares a professional woman's life-changing journey to Greece to work with refugees arriving from the Middle East and Asia. The story begins on the island of Lesvos where overloaded boats of refugees landed on local beaches, and moves to Athens where the author unexpectedly becomes a member of a family of refugees from four countries.
This timely portrayal describes the effects of geopolitics on people escaping war, the generosity of the people of Lesvos and how love transcends culture, religion and experience.
