Join us on June 14th as we bring together UBC alumni who will share their personal journeys as well as UBC experts who will offer strategies for anyone who want to find a way to stay in this city.

Book Club Spring 2016: Book of Sands by Karim Alrawi

This powerful, lyrical novel of the endurance of love is set amid the upheaval of the Arab Spring and the brutal repression of a totalitarian regime. Tarek, a young father, watches as the city he lives in is mired in protests, hemmed in by barricades and strangely inundated by great flocks of birds. Facing the threat of police arrest, he flees with his nine-year-old daughter, Neda.
