The Scottish Book Trust are holding an Authors Live broadcast with writer, Bessora and translator, Sarah Ardizzone on 6 October 2016.

Alpha: Abidjan to Gare du Nord, written by Bessora and illustrated by Barroux, is a timely and important graphic novel account of one man’s desperate journey from North Africa to Europe. Join Bessora and translator Sarah Ardizzone as they discuss the book, how they each approached it as a project and why it’s so vital we share stories of the refugee crisis.

This event will be relevant to Modern Studies, History, Geography, Modern Languages, English and Media Studies classes from S3-S6.
