book cover of The IllegalAward-winning Canadian author Lawrence Hill will deliver a public lecture titled “The Illegal: A Meditation on Refugee Issues” at the CIGI Campus Auditorium on October 7. This special presentation is co-sponsored by the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Arts and Wilfrid Laurier University.

Just published, Lawrence Hill’s novel The Illegal is the story of Keita Ali, a young marathon runner who flees a repressive regime in his native Zantoroland and finds shelter in Africtown, a community of undocumented refugees living underground in the wealthy nation of Freedom State. Keita can only be safe if he keeps moving and eludes the officials who would deport him to his own country, where he would face almost certain death.
