While the Earth Sleeps We Travel - Stories, Poetry, and Art from Refugee Youth Around the World

Author(s): Ahmed Badr


A groundbreaking collection of poetry, personal narratives, and art from refugee youth around the world. Foreword by actor and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Ben Stiller.

Beginning in 2018, Ahmed M. Badr--an Iraqi-American poet and former refugee--traveled to Greece, Trinidad & Tobago, and Syracuse, New York, holding storytelling workshops with hundreds of displaced youth: those living in and outside of camps, as well as those adjusting to life after resettlement. Combining Badr's own poetry with the personal narratives and creative contributions of dozens of young refugees, While the Earth Sleeps We Travel seeks to center and amplify the often unheard perspectives of those navigating through and beyond the complexities of displacement. The result is a diverse and moving collection--a meditation on the concept of "home" and a testament to the power of storytelling.
