Local author, Elie Nasrallah, will be here from 12:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday, February 18 to sign copies of his book, Gates & Walls: Stories of Migration in Modern Times.
About the book:
“In 1979, a teenaged Elie Mikhael Nasrallah left his parents’ house and walked across the public square to the bus stop, beginning the long journey to Canada. He was not the first of his village – nor even his family – to take this step, nor would be the last. Civil war had gripped his homeland of Lebanon, offering its youth a bleak future.
Every immigrant has a story, and as a certified immigration consultant for more than twenty years, representing clients from around the world, Nasrallah had heard more than most. Listening with a sympathetic ear, he has helped many navigate the gates and walls that stand between here and there. These are the voices and insights into what has made, in Nasrallah’s eyes, Canada the greatest country in the world.”
