4c

Time: 11:30 - 12:50
Location: Odeon Building, Room 107. 50 Market Street
Cost: Free. Open to the public.

Debi Goodwin, documentary producer and former CBC journalist, will speak about her new book Citizens of Nowhere (http://www.randomhouse.ca/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9780385667227). The book recounts the story of eleven young people from refugee camps in Kenya who are sponsored to study at Canadian universities by students working through the World University Service of Canada (WUSC). In Debi's writing we witness the challenges these individuals face during their first year in their new home. Further, in Debi's effort to illustrate the human side of global migration, we see one example of the kind of life of purpose that Laurier seeks to inspire.
