On October 12, 2021, the ALIRP Education Committee had another Virtual book discussion to discuss the book Somewhere in the Unknown World: A Collective Refugee Memoir by Kao Kalia Yang. The discussion was facilitated by Karina Cortes.
Author and fellow refugee Kao Kalia Yang vividly shares the lives of fourteen refugees relocated to Minnesota. At a time when refugees are deeply misunderstood, these personal stories of survival reinforce our common humanity.
Kirsty Gladfelter, Senior Director, International Rescue Committee describes this book as “an offering from the heart, a memoir of hope. You fear for the children when the rebels attack. You weep for the sisters left on the other side of the river. You smile at a family reunited after too many years apart."
