27. Seeking Refuge

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Mary Beth Leatherdale, Kathryn E. Shoemaker, Irene N. Watts
Moderator: France Perras

To better understand the plight of refugees, we need to hear their stories and grasp what—and often who—they’re leaving behind. Irene N. Watts and Kathryn E. Shoemaker are co-creators of the graphic novel Seeking Refuge, the story of 11-year-old Marianne who was among the first group of Jewish children included in the Kindertransport, which moved children to safety out of Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia in the nine months preceding WWII. Watts was, in fact, one of these fortunate children. Mary Beth Leatherdale reveals the true stories of five children from different eras—from Nazi Germany to war-torn Vietnam, Afghanistan to the Ivory Coast—who undertook treacherous voyages to reach freedom and safety. You’ll appreciate your life like never before after today.
