Here, David Horspool of the TLS talks to Dina Nayeri, author of The Ungrateful Refugee, one of the most widely shared long reads in the Guardian and award-winning BBC journalist Nick Thorpe, whose book The Road Before Me Weeps is a powerful and revealing firsthand account of the migrant and refugee experience on the overland route across Europe.

Proceeds from this event will support the work of The North Hackney Welcome Project
