On Wednesday 4th May at 2pm, Dr Lynne Jones will give a talk in the Reading Room discussing the migrant experience, documented in her book The Migrant Diaries, which is available to borrow from the library.
Her book is dedicated to “all those forced to leave the place they call home” and bears essential witness to the refugee crises of France, Greece, Italy and Mexico over a period of five years. In this talk, Dr Lynne Jones will discuss what forces families to make these journeys – including the climate and ecological crises – and will strike a sharp chord with the stories of displacement currently at the forefront of our minds. Her diaries records the voices of those we very rarely hear from and shares their extraordinary tales.
