Read the book

What is it like to be a refugee? It is a question many of us do not give much thought to, and yet there are more than 25 million refugees in the world. Read the real human stories of what it is like to journey across borders in the hope of starting afresh.

Join the discussion

Listen to the narratives of former refugees in our Syracuse community and enjoy a special audio recording from the author, Dina Nayeri.

This is a special book discussion partnership in commemoration of World Refugee Day through InterFaith Works’ Center for New Americans, Maxwell Memorial Library, and Onondaga Free Library with support from Hoopla Digital.

The Ungrateful Refugee is available as an ebook and eaudiobook through your Maxwell Library Hoopla account. Read or listen before the online discussion, and register with your name and email address by Monday, June 15. The Zoom link will be emailed to you a few days prior to the event.
