Maudlyne Ihejirika on Being a Refugee

"I was that little boy."

In case you missed it, award-winning journalist +Maudlyne Ihejirika talked to WCGO's Daniel French in late January about the book she wrote with her mother, Escape from Nigeria: A Memoir of Faith, Love and War, colonialism, lasting tension in Nigeria and other African countries and being a refugee. I was in on the conversation too, though I spoke little. Maudlyne was just too interesting to interrupt.

Bookends and Beginnings got a shout out.

You might recall I posted a piece about our Evanston neighbor and her book back in July.
