Local writer Kim Malcolm discusses her powerful memoir, A Country Within: A Journey of Love and Hope During the Refugee Crisis in Greece

A Country Within shares a professional woman's life-changing journey to Greece to work with refugees arriving from the Middle East and Asia.

The story begins on the island of Lesvos where overloaded boats of refugees landed on local beaches, and moves to Athens where the author unexpectedly becomes a member of a family of refugees from four countries.

This timely portrayal describes the effects of geopolitics on people escaping war, the generosity of the people of Lesvos and how love transcends culture, religion and experience.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In the meantime, we have an exciting list of virtual events and meet-and-greet booksignings on our calendar and we look forward welcoming you into this new format.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
