Books for Sanctuary
Share with us the books you have read which helped you better understand issues around sanctuary.
Here is the list we have gathered so far. All reviews gratefully received so that we can improve this resource.
We are also pleased to link you to the Migrant Rights Network page: 2014 in books: Borders, identity and the good society which provides a list of books on migration passed around the MRN office in 2014.
Here too is a link to the 2017 Journeys Festival International list of books for adults, children and young adults as part of the Literature / story telling aspect of the festival. These were showcased in their travelling library as part of the festival enabling people to understand the refugee experience.
Books, Reading Groups and working with libraries are great ways of engaging people to think and talk about the issues around asylum. Here too is a leaflet from Newcastle Libraries in partnership with City of Sanctuary.
And of course we celebrate Libraries of Sanctuary for their contribution to the culture of welcome.
