Word from the author

“Confined in a small apartment in Toronto during the 2020 pandemic, I was compelled to write and illustrate Words and Sand. This story explores the themes of identity, self-acceptance, friendship and travel. I was inspired by the history of my country of origin and my childhood in Algeria during the civil war in the 1990’s. 

As I wrote the script, I felt a deep personal connection to the story and its protagonists and I hope to share this connection with readers who want to travel back in time, but also escape in a road trip illustrated in a comic format.” 

 Amirak Delat

“Amirak Delat’s script is a solid one. She makes us feel for the characters, to wonder at the depiction of everyday life in times of turmoil.”
