GARAS volunteer, Ian Parker-Dodd, has written a collection of poetry entitled All They Will Call You. Ian says, “this book was inspired in the time that I spent helping teach unaccompanied migrant children at GARAS for the four years leading up to the pandemic.” As well as the thought-provoking, and at times provocative, poems, there are additional prose contributions from others connected to GARAS.
The stunning front cover is a Derek Robertson painting, Children of the Clouds, and the book has been thoughtfully and beautifully produced. Adele Owen, Director of GARAS, says “this is an inspirational book. As I read some of the poems, I was transported afresh into the world and experience of others. We are delighted and privileged to have worked alongside Ian over the years, and for this book to be one of the positive results of his work with us.”
All They Will Call You is available to buy from GARAS, at a cost of £10 per copy, with a voluntary donation of £1 to cover p&p. All proceeds will go towards the work of GARAS. If you would like to purchase a copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
