American Refuge: True Stories of the Refugee Experience is an intimate and eye-opening book that explains exactly what it means to be a refugee in The United States. More relevant than ever with the influx of refugees increasing daily across the globe, particularly with the ongoing crisis in The Ukraine displacing countless people. They are seeking refuge wherever they will be out of harm’s way. 

Diya Abdo is the first daughter and granddaughter of Palestinian refugees born in their country of displacement, Jordan. A graduate of Yarmouk University, she earned master's and doctorate degrees from Drew University. She is a full professor in the English department of Guilford College, where she founded the first chapter of Every Campus A Refuge (ECAR), which aims to host global refugees. Diya is the recipient of several national community engagement awards, including the 2021 J.M.K. Innovation Prize for her work with ECAR. She lives in Greensboro, NC, with her partner, daughters, and cats.
