Join The Polis Project and Warscapes Magazine for the U.S. book launch of Hassan Ghedi Santur’s The Youth of God. The novel relates the alienated experiences of Somali youth as they negotiate daily life in a Somali neighborhood in Toronto–an environment riddled with crime, unemployment and the bitter memories of a home left behind. Santur will discuss the book with Warscapes’ senior editor, Michael Busch.
