Featuring Roya Hakakian on May 25, 2021

Roya Hakakian, poet, journalist and writer, sits down with the Council to talk about her personal journey to the United States as a refugee and her new book, A Beginner’s Guide to America.  For immigrants and refugees, the challenges and triumphs of life in the United States can be vast, so what is the best practical advice and information for those who settle in the U.S.? And how has a U.S. citizen who came to America as a refugee from Iran turned her experience into a helpful guide for the newly arrived? 

This episode was made possible by generous support from Connecticut Humanities with additional support by Murtha Cullina LLP.

Follow Roya on Twitter @RoyaTheWriter and check out her new book, A Beginner's Guide to America.
