Drawn Across Borders: True Stories of Migration
Author-illustrator George Butler’s debut was formed from a series of interviews with migrants and refugees, detailing their experiences of migration. These personal accounts were shared with the author during a number of travels to areas with high levels of migration between 2011 and 2018. The people that he met did not have the option to remain at home safely for a variety of reasons, with migration becoming a means of survival for many. These accounts discuss the events leading up to departure, the struggles of the journey and what must be left behind in the process of finding a new home.
