In Conversation with Tima Kurdi

Tima Kurdi is an internationally recognized spokesperson on the global refugee crisis. She is the author of The Boy on the Beach: My Family’s escape from Syria and Our Hope for a New Home.

This memoir (to be published by Simon & Schuster Canada) tells the story of her beautiful family, before and after the death of her nephew Alan Kurdi, whose photo was seen by millions.

The English-language event, hosted by Christine McLean, will take place on Saturday, April 21 at 2:00 pm at théâtre l’Escaouette, 170 Botsford St., Moncton. It will be followed by a Q&A and book signing. Free and supervised children’s activities will be offered in the lower level of the theatre.
