      A Night in for Refugees with Clemantine Wamariya

      Join Read4Refugees (in collaboration with the Girls' Night In Boston Community) for a night in to raise money for refugees. Wear your best pajamas, bring a book to swap, and get ready to cozy up with other compassionate booklovers. The event will run from 7 - 9pm and feature a virtual reading and Q&A from the incredible author and human rights activist, Clemantine Wamariya.  Joyful Clemantine Wamariya is an internationally renowned speaker, a New York Times bestselling author, and an accomplished human rights advocate. Her memoir The Girl Who Smiled Beads debuted with Crown Publishing in April 2018 and is published in 7 languages and dozens of countries. Clemantine received her BA in Comparative Literature from Yale University in 2014 and built her career as “a compelling storyteller and fierce advocate" (Amy Poehler). Clemantine has appeared four times as a guest on The Oprah Show and was appointed by President Obama in 2016 to serve on the board of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. All proceeds from this event will support RefugePoint, an award-winning organization that brings critical resources to people on the front lines of the refugee crisis. The Read4Refugees campaign supports highly vulnerable refugees who are often overlooked by traditional forms of humanitarian aid; refugees who have spent almost 20 years in a country of asylum, the chronically ill, LGBTQI individuals, survivors of violence and torture, and women and children.  This event is ticketed, while the suggested donation is $30 we encourage you to pay what you can!
