"The Heady Mix concept is so brilliant. These books were not what I would have chosen, but it showcases exceptional talent and explores something out of the ordinary. I am so impressed with what Justina, founder and chief curator, has done here ... The thought that seems to go into each of these collections is remarkable."
According to the United Nations Refugee Agency, one in every 103 people around the world is either an asylum seeker, internally displaced or a refugee.
A person becomes displaced every four seconds and 16 people are forced from their homes every minute - totalling 23,800 every day.
Our next collection titled Lost and Found, explores the myriad of the refugee experience. Of course, a common thread exists, that being forced to flee your home, but for those who embark on such perilous journeys to safety, what is lost and what is found?
Too often we think about possessions: one’s home, car and belongings. But there’s also jobs, perhaps family, friends and a whole range of unquantifiable things: routines, values, smells and sounds. Look at your life, all the tiny elements that make up the sum of it, that which makes it undeniably your life and the impact of upping and moving away, suddenly and forcefully. How much could you retain, what concepts and values could you protect and how would this impact on your identity?
This curated collection of stories narrates the losses that are beyond the obvious, and gains that we’ll not understand existed without reading their pages.
Our collections sellout, so order Lost and Found today to secure your box. Shipping is from 14th October.
At Heady Mix, we search out the very best stories for you that aren't getting the bookshelf space they deserve. We won't lie, we love it and we do it so that you don't have to. Books about and by underrepresented groups can be hard to find, so we're changing that and normalising the diversity in what we consume. This is not like any other book box subscription as the stories we showcase are genuinely different, carrying unique perspectives and ones that will grow your mind. Once we've curated a selection of wonderful stories, all you have to do is enjoy your reads. Join the Heady Mix book box membership before we sell out of the next collection.
