In their photographic picture book, Finding Home: Words From Kids Seeking Sanctuary, authors Gwen Agna and Shelley Rotner transcribe the words of children, from all corners of the world, as they were photographed and sharing their emotional journey. With joy and love, this book celebrates the resilience, hope and joy as these children and families embark on a new beginning—making friends, going to school and welcomed into communities.

Joining Agna and Rotner for storytime are some of the children photographed for the book. The authors will also share their motivation for creating Finding Home, answer questions from the audience, and invite the children from the book attending to join in with thoughts and answers to questions.
