Lost & Found Book Box
Donated by Heady Mix
In our Lost and Found collection, the stories selected were ones that examined the complexity of the refugee experience – how despite the great euphoria of finding safety, so much is lost too; the senses of home, culture, the familiar. So often the narratives we read of refugees are those of unimaginable disaster, displacement, destruction – of course, these aspects happen, but what of before, the piece of a puzzle that makes up a person: home? And in our Earth collection, stories that looked to indigenous peoples and the disproportionate effect climate change is having on First Nations communities – we connected readers to more narratives being omitted. The historical, endemic suffering these groups have endured continuing today under a different guise.
