Books

Every month, starting with Fugitive Pieces in September, we will add a book page. Each book page has a literary introduction to the book written by an international scholar, some information about the history the book reckons with, and some information about the human rights issues brought up. Just click on the titles to see more.

Our current “Books of the Month” are Home and All the Light We Cannot See.

You can use the links below to navigate around the page.
