If you happen to be in Luxembourg on the 29th of April 2017, don’t miss the chance to meet Peruvian writer Teresa Ruiy Rosa who will present her latest book “Nada que declarar”. Written in Spanish, the book deals with the theme of women trafficking and migration, through the stories of two women, between Peru and Germany and is currently being translated into French.
The event is part of Time for Equality’s campaign “Learn/Share/Take Action” aimed at raising awareness on human trafficking and modern day slavery by making use of films, books and art. Learn more about Time for Equality here and find more details about the event here.
