Book Launch, Reading & Reception, for
The Garden by Meghan Ferrari
Saturday, October 27
2 – 4 p.m.
Aurora Public Library, Lebovic Room
15145 Yonge St, Aurora, Ontario (Map here)
Fifteen-year-old Elias and his family are caught in the middle of an international conflict – the deadly crossfire between the Syrian Army and the rebels. Dangers mount, conditions worsen, and after witnessing the tragedy of war and the indignities of a refugee camp, Elias finds himself a newcomer in North America where he comes face to face with completely new battles - culture shock, racism, and bullying.
Inspired by the stories of her newcomer students and their families, The Garden is a poignant yet inspiring young adult novel that sheds light on the social impact of modern military conflict and the plight of innocent victims displaced by it. It will also provide young readers with empathy, respect, and a new understanding of our new neighbors uprooted by war.
If you’re not able to make it to the launch, The Garden is available from Red Deer Press here.
