Ari's first book, The Architects of Hope, can be purchased on Amazon here.
In the fall of 2014, Ari Satok set off on a storytelling journey around the world. For close to one year, he traveled to international schools on four different continents, on a mission to capture the stories of the schools’ students, who came from all corners of the globe to live and learn together. Drawn from a year of interviews, The Architects of Hope tells sixteen of these students’ magnificent stories through poetry. From the story of Kainat, a young woman from Pakistan shot by the Taliban in their quest to suppress girls’ education, to the story of Aiham, a young man from Syria forced to flee his homeland as civil war engulfed it, to the story of Sibia, a young woman from Guatemala all too aware of her country’s glaring educational inequalities, this poetry collection speaks to the hardship and adversity faced by young people all around the world. But it reminds us, in poem after poem, of the remarkable hope for a better tomorrow shared by these same young people: a hope that speaks in all languages and cultures.
