Sold Out Juan Tomás Ávila Laurel & Sharon Bala

In Search of Refuge

Perhaps we’ve become inured to stories about refugees and migration. If so, these novels demonstrate that the human cost of escape, survival and asylum shouldn't be underestimated. Juan Tomás Ávila Laurel is from Equatorial Guinea and his novel The Gurugu Pledge follows migrants from North Africa seeking asylum in Spain. Newfoundland-based Sharon Bala’s The Boat People is about refugees fleeing civil war in Sri Lanka. Chaired by Daniel Hahn.
