Coming Together in Skokie- Author Deborah Ellis Visits!
In March, Deborah Ellis visited us for a discussion of her book- Children of War: Voices of Iraqi Refugees. In this book, Ellis interviews Iraqi children who have been displaced along with their families to Jordan, Syria, and North America, and crowded refugee camps throughout the Middle East.
Every person living far from the place they consider home faces a unique set of fears and challenges as they struggle to make life work in a new place. This was a meaningful event for parents from the Center and other community members that joined together to hear from the author and talk about these important and untold stories.
