We are delighted to share an excellent article about the launch of Prue Mason’s latest book Zafir which appeared in The Age on the 23rd of March and can be read HERE
Prue Mason‘s book Zafir is the last in the six-book Through My Eyes series and tells the story of a 13-year-old Zafir. The year is 2011 and the setting is the Syrian city of Homs. Zafir and his family are caught up in the early days of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad that we now know resulted in mass killings.
The Through My Eyes series is aimed at students aged 11-14 and each book is set in a different area of conflict – the titles are all written by Australian authors and the full set of titles include Shahana, Emilio, Amina, Malini, Naveed and of course, Zafir.
The series editor is Lyn White, and Lyn along with the authors are available to speak about their books and the Through My Eyes series.
