A refugee family’s journey from Somalia to Clarkston is chronicled in “Resettled,” an exhibit at the Tucker-Reid H. Cofer Library through Feb. 27.

The exhibit is a long-term personal project on refugee resettlement by Bryan Meltz, senior photography coordinator at Emory University. It has been recognized by Review Santa Fe, the International Photography Awards and American Photo Images of the Year.

A finalist for the FotoVisura grant for outstanding personal photography project, it was also featured on NPR.

“Resettled” is part of Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys, a scholar-led reading and discussion program designed to foster opportunities for informed community conversations about the histories, faith, and cultures of Muslims around the world and within the United States. The series has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the American Library Association. The library is at 5234 LaVista Road.
