With the understanding that the face and voice of the Treasure Valley is ever-evolving, The Boise Library's "Conversation" series turns its lens to refugees in Boise this coming Saturday, July 18. 

The Library! at Hillcrest will play host to representatives from the Boise offices of the International Rescue Committee - Jessie Berner, IRC medical caseworker, Dauda Balubwila, IRC case manager and Hadiel Mohamed, IRC employment specialist. Following a brief presentation, on the agency's work, an open discussion will examine Boise's diverse community. The event runs from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m.
