„Sons of Immigrants. Daughters of the Revolution“ is a powerful book of poetry in which Sera Babakus recounts the mélange of moments which have defined her as an immigrant daughter and shaped her as a World Citizen. She holds a mirror up to her life as an expat, daring to reveal both its quiet ugliness and its cacophonous beauty. Meet the author and join us for a powerful reading at the Merlin.

Sera Babakus

Sera Babakus in her own words: „The daughter of an American mother and a Turkish father, I took the Transatlantic leap in 2012 to live with my husband in the southwest German state of Saarland. I guess that makes me: fifty percent American, fifty percent Turkish, fifty percent German, and zero percent good at math. When I am not consulting immigrant and refugee entrepreneurs, I am busy working my way back into the literature and creative arts scene. I am convinced that diversity, as well as the exchange of ideas across borders and cultures, are key to global social justice and innovation.“
