Malala pens new book on refugee girls

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Nobel Peace Prize winner and Pakistani activist Yousafzai is coming up with a new book, charting her experiences travelling the world and visiting camps. Titled "We are Displaced", the book will hit the stands in on Wednesday.

In a press communique, publishers and Hachette said that her travels through the camps caused her to reconsider her own displacement -- first as an Internally Displaced Person when she was a young child in Pakistan, and then as an who could travel anywhere in the world, except to the home she loved.

"In We are Displaced, which is part memoir, part communal storytelling, not only explores her own story of adjusting to a new life while longing for home, but she also shares the personal stories of some of the incredible girls she has met on her various journeys - girls who have lost their community, relatives and often the only world they've ever known," the communique added.

The 244-page book along with eight pages of colour inserts is priced at Rs 399.
