Anissa M Bouziane & Pierre Jarawan

Families in Faraway Lands

Anissa M Bouziane and Pierre Jarawan look beyond the headlines to reflect real stories of the Middle East and North Africa. Bouziane’s Dune Song echoes her own experience of watching the Twin Towers collapse as she introduces Jeehan, who leaves New York after 9/11 to find a troubled life in Morocco. In Jarawan's The Storyteller, Samir gives up the relative comfort of his adopted German home to track down his father in Beirut. They discuss their ideas and new books with fellow author Karen Campbell.
