On April 24, 2018, LitFest had the pleasure of hosting Tima Kurdi in a candid conversation about her memoir The Boy on the Beach. Tima spoke with host Omar Mouallem about her family’s experience fleeing Syria as refugees and the events that lead to her decision to tell their story. After the event, Tima spent time in the lobby signing books.
LitFest would like to thank our partners for this event: Simon and Schuster Canada, Metro Cinema, and Indigo. We would like to extend our gratitude to Tima Kurdi for participating in a beautifully vulnerable conversation. We would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped ensure that this event ran smoothly. Finally, we would like to extend a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who came out to attend and support the event!
