Graphic Novel: Baddawi

Baddawi is a coming-of-age story about a young boy named Ahmad struggling to find his place in the world. Raised in a refugee camp in Lebanon, Ahmad is just one of the thousands of Palestinians who fled their homeland after the war in 1948 established the state of Israel. In this visually arresting graphic novel, Abdelrazaq explores her father's childhood in the 1960s and '70s from a boy's eye view.
