Friday, 27 March 2020
Blue Peter Book Award winner Onjali Q Raúf talks about The Boy at the Back of the Class and her new book The Star Outside My Window and about the experiences that have inspired her.
The Boy at the Back of the Class portrays the refugee crisis through the eyes of a child. Told with heart, humour and hope, it is a touching story about friendship and children’s power to change the world. Her new book, The Star Outside My Window, also celebrates the power of hope and resilience.
Onjali specialised in women’s studies at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, and Oxford University before working in human rights charities. She is the founder of Making Herstory, an organisation mobilising men, women and children from all walks of life to tackle the abuse and trafficking of women and girls in the UK and beyond. In her spare time, she delivers emergency aid convoys for refugee families surviving in Calais and Dunkirk and supports interfaith projects.
Suitable for years 5 and 6.
