Thom Brooks and Gulwali Passarlay: Becoming British

8th October 2017, 15:00 to 16:00, Palace Green Library, Durham

This is a Durham Book Festival event featuring Durham academic Professor Thom Brooks.
In Becoming British, citizenship expert Thom Brooks explores the big questions rarely answered by the politicians, examining the relationship between immigration and citizenship in order to challenge the popular and political myths that surround this topic.

Thom Brooks is Professor of Law and Government at Durham University. He is a dual citizen of the UK and United States.

Gulwali Passarlay left his home in Afghanistan when he was twelve years old, enduring a terrifying journey across Europe in the hands of people smugglers. The author of The Lightless Sky, Gulwali has written a piece, especially for Durham Book Festival, about his experiences of arriving and living in the UK as a teenager.
