Tima Kurdi, the author of The Boy on the Beach is coming for a special offseason Kingston Writers Fest event. Her book is an intimate and poignant memoir about the family of Alan Kurdi—a young Syrian boy who became the global emblem for the desperate plight of millions of Syrian refugees—and of the many extraordinary journeys the Kurdis have taken, spanning countries and continents. The book explores newcomer experiences, the global refugee crisis, the politicization of tragedy, and the love and hope that one family shared in the face of grief and adversity.
An Evening with Tima Kurdi takes place on Wednesday, March 11th at Grant Hall from 7:00 – 8:30 pm.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
