My Fourth Time, We Drowned: Sally Hayden in conversation with Sorcha Pollak


This event has now passed.

Join us for an evening with journalists Sally Hayden and Sorcha Pollak in conversation about their work surrounding migrants and the humanitarian crises and in particular Hayden’s important new book. My Fourth Time We Drowned, just published by Fourth Estate, details the shocking experiences of refugees seeking sanctuary and those that were incarcerated as a direct result of European policy. Pollak and Hayden will discuss the human experiences behind the news stories and will be taking questions from the audience. This is a free event, and all are welcome.
