Christy Lefteri is the Author of The Beekeeper of Aleppo
Join me for a fascinating conversation with Christy about her life, her work, her novels, and what she’s writing next, as well as her perspective on how to find hope even when it seems so far off.
Brought up in London, Christy Lefteri is the child of Cypriot refugees. She is a lecturer in creative writing at Brunel University. The Beekeeper of Aleppo was born out of her time working as a volunteer at a Unicef supported refugee centre in Athens, and draws on her own personal experiences getting to know those escaping harrowing war torn regions. Everything in the book; dark or beautiful has come directly from people she has met.
