Refugees, asylum seekers and people at risk of persecution often have no choice but to leave family members behind when they flee conflict zones or regressive regimes. The writing today is from individuals who have had to sustain family relationships at long distance with uncertain futures. Chaired by Kasey McCall-Smith.  

Authors Reading: Stella Duffy, Sasha Dugdale, Sally Gardner and Karen Lord
