Refugee Tales at the Pioneers Museum at Rochdale Pioneers Museum, Manchester, 21 February 2018, from £3.50 - Book now

Part of Manchester’s UNESCO City of Literature series and another event marking International Mother Language Day is this set of readings from the second book of Refugee Tales published by Comma Press. Written by top authors in collaboration with refugees, the unique content in both the Refugee Tales anthologies is not about some distant, brutal past, but of Europe’s new underclass, its refugees, and both collections recount the stories of their travels to the UK, blighted by challenge and crisis. Scottish Makar Jackie Kay says they give ‘faces to the faceless, and voices to the voiceless, humanizing the people that our society demonises’ while Shami Chakrabarti describes them as ‘challenging and poignant’. This event sees readings from three of the contributors to Refugee Tales II: Ian Duhig and David Herd and Anna Pincus, co-organisers of the Refugee Tales project and co-editors of both volumes.
