Welcome to Nowhere: The Crisis in Syria The conflict in Syria is not simply a case of the ‘Arab Spring’ gone wrong, but a civil war of great complexity. David McDowall and Elizabeth Laird will address some of the deep factors which have contributed to the current tragic situation, and how Elizabeth was inspired to write her latest novel Welcome to Nowhere as a result of her time volunteering in refugee camps in Jordan. Tickets cost £5/ £3 for Waterstones card holders and is redeemable against the price of the book on the night.

Elizabeth Laird is the multi-award-winning author of several much-loved children's books including The Garbage King, The Fastest Boy in the World and Dindy and the Elephant. She has been shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie Medal six times. She lives in Britain now, but still likes to travel as much as she can.
