We are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with aid charity, From Syria With Love to publish a unique portrait of the lives of children caught up in the Syrian conflict.
The book, also ‘From Syria With Love’, features a group of children living in a refugee camp in Lebanon. It combines their poems, pictures, letters and diaries with narratives and poetry by those who have worked with the children or been inspired by their stories.
Editor and contributor, Molly Masters, is a university student who was inspired first to volunteer with the charity and then launch the project.
‘We’ve all seen the terrible images from Syria on television’, said Molly. ‘In this book, we wanted to show the lives of real children, what conflict and exile means for them, and their hopes for the future. It doesn’t ignore the suffering, but the message is one of peace and love.’
From first meeting with Molly on September 5th 2016, the book is now being printed – and will be launched at Waterstones in Brighton on November 4th. This is pretty fast for the book trade and we’ve had great support from our printers, CPI, from Waterstones and from our distributors, Vine House.
Funds raised by the book will be used to help those featured within it, continuing the charity’s work in the Al Abrar refugee camp.
Our last charity fundraising book, just re-released in paperback, was the anthology ‘Why Willows Weep’, which raised over £60,000 for the Woodland Trust. We can only hope that From Syria With Love will also be able to raise some vital funds before the worst of the winter.
From Syria With Love will be officially released on November 1st 2016, but we are already accepting pre-orders here.
