FEATURING MINNAH ARSHAD – The war in Syria has claimed untold lives and fueled the worst refugee crisis of the modern era. Syrian refugees have been demonized both in Europe and the US. While it is easier to reduce the war to numbers one very young writer has distilled in print, what’s most important about the Syrian tragedy: real human beings with real lives and feelings.
Kindness is a Waiting Place is Minnah Arshad’s second novel and it is about “The life-changing encounter between an American woman and a Syrian boy.”
