Book Reading/Signing at Wild Rumpus Bookstore
Wild Rumpus is so pleased to welcome back Green Card Voices as they celebrate the release of Our Stories Carried Us Here: VOICE FOR REFUGE by author Zaynab Abdi!
Zaynab Abdi, emerging global leader, chronicles her journey, from Somalia to Yemen and Egypt, and ultimately the United States. Her graphic memoir, illustrated by Achraf El-Attar, is told in both English and Arabic.
Zaynab was born in Somalia and raised by her grandmother in Yemen, where they experienced a simple but beautiful life before unrest came to the country. Follow Zaynab as she flees to Egypt with her sister. Feel the love she is greeted with in America when she joins her mother and two sisters she has never met. Watch her grow as an advocate as she takes on the leadership opportunities within high school and university. Upon meeting Malala Yousafzai, and speaking at the United Nations, she becomes a voice for refuge.
This event is free and open to the public. Seating will be available on a first-come first-served basis. Masks are encouraged.
Following the event, Zaynab Abdi will be available to sign copies of her book. If you are unable to attend but would still like a signed copy, you may order a copy from this page and we will ship after the event, or hold it behind the counter for local pickup. Please note in your order any personalization requests and we will do our best to accommodate. Orders must be placed by 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 11th to guarantee signed copies.
