Author writes memoir of working with refugees in Greece
PIEDMONT — In 2015, Kim Malcolm traveled to Greece after reading how the people of Lesvos were helping up to 6,000 refugees from the Middle East and Asia everyday.
Her two-week stint as a volunteer grew into a two-year, life-changing experience that she has published as “A Country Within: A Journey of Love and Hope During the Refugee Crisis in Greece.”
Her story begins on the beaches of the island of Lesvos and moves to Athens, where the longtime resident of Piedmont and Oakland finds connections with a group of refugees there, creating an unexpected family. Along the way, Malcolm also finds connections to her refugee grandfather.
