The North Hackney Welcome Project will rehome a family from Syria this summer and this event looks at the refugee experience from two very different perspectives. David Horspool of the TLS talks to Dina Nayeri, author of The Ungrateful Refugee, one of the most widely shared long reads in the Guardian and to award-winning BBC journalist Nick Thorpe, whose book The Road Before Me Weeps is a powerful and revealing firsthand account of the migrant and refugee experience on the overland route across Europe.Buy tickets
