Event for locally published novel about refugees Many Rivers To Cross
LoveReading LitFest, the recently launched digital book festival, has partnered Newport Live in a launch event for debut novel Many Rivers To Cross by Dylan Moore (Three Impostors). Newport Live is a charitable trust providing cultural and sporting activities in the Welsh city.
The event, which goes live today (20 April), features the author in conversation at the Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre. Moore has based his novel on numerous interviews with asylum seekers and refugees, and the event also includes interviews with two refugees who have settled in Newport after travelling from Ethiopia.
