About the event
We're kicking off our first Online Book Club of the year with Christy Lefteri's moving and powerful novel, The Beekeeper of Aleppo. From her experience as a volunteer in refugee camps, the author pens a soulful story that follows the lives of Nuri, a beekeeper and his artist wife, Afra, who are living a simple and content life in the Syrian city of Aleppo when suddenly, war breaks out.
Nuri and Afra flee Aleppo in search of safety but the journey is filled with obstacles and dangers as they navigate through strange lands, towards an uncertain future. The only thought that encourages Nuri to keep going is his cousin’s apiary in Yorkshire and his promise that Nuri can join him as a beekeeper once he safely reaches Britain.
Check out the book from our Digital Library collection and join the conversation LIVE as we unpack this intense story of courage, determination, and starting over.
