'This remarkable novel isn't about the refugee voice; it is born from it and told through it. On every page, the glint of hope for dignity and a better life is heartbreakingly alive.' KHALED HOSSEINI, AUTHOR OF THE KITE RUNNER; 'Both from a humanitarian standpoint and an artistic perspective, Peirene are doing invaluable work in finding new voices who open our eyes, ears and hearts to worldly reality in all its profound suffering, joy, community, isolation and complexity.' BIDISHA, WRITER AND BROADCASTER; 'Compassion for our fellow humans fosters change. Shatila Stories allows us a window into the lives of those fleeing a war zone and their attempts to find a safe sanctuary.' LUCY POPESCU, CRITIC AND WRITER
Bloggat om Shatila Stories
Nine Syrian and Palestinian refugees took part in a creative writing workshop run by Peirene in 2017 in the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut. Afterwards, the participants were commissioned to create a piece of collaborative literature. The group consists of six women and three men between the ages of 20 and 43. Some have a university degree, others have never completed their formal schooling. Most have arrived in Beirut from Syria over the last five years, and a couple are second and third generation Palestinian refugees who were born in Shatila. Their names are: Omar Khaled Ahmad, Nibal Alalo, Safa Khaled Algharbawi, Omar Abdellatif Alndaf, Rayan Mohamad Sukkar, Safiya Badran, Fatima Omar Ghazawi, Samih Mahmoud, Hiba Mareb.
