All are welcome to the launch of A Dangerous Crossing by Jane Mitchell, based on the experiences of real Syrian families.
Running with his cousin through the blown-out shops and bombed stalls of Kobani’s old souq, 13 year old Ghalid Shenu feels invincible; until the pair of them are caught in a barrel-bomb explosion. Ghalid escapes serious injury but his parents decide they must flee the war, and so the family begin the long and dangerous journey from their home in Syria to Europe
The book will be launched by the Executive Director of Amnesty International Ireland, Colm O'Gorman.
