The Girl Who Smiled Beads: A Story of War and What Comes After (2018) • Clemantine Wamariya and Elizabeth Weil
This is the story of Clemantine Wamariya, who, in 1994, fled the Rwandan massacre with her fifteen-year-old sister, Claire, and spent the next six years wandering through seven African countries, searching for safety. The book captures the true costs and aftershocks of war: what is forever destroyed; and what can be repaired. Free. No sign-up is needed. Just come!
