The Dead Rabbits Podcast with Brian Birnbaum records an episode live featuring YA author Atia Abawi discussing how they redefine the definitions of home and trauma. In Abawi’s book, A Land of Permanent Goodbyes, Syria is torn apart due to war, leaving each survivor with a new and dangerous label: refugee. And in Birnbaum’s Emerald City, a family company’s profits are being used to illegally fund a drug-crop in Guatemala. Discover how to navigate uncertain futures in fictional worlds not so unlike our own.
