Readings Emporium — Woiworung Country, Emporium Melbourne, Shop 1-016/287 Lonsdale St, Melbourne VIC 3000

For decades, Hong Kong’s history was simply not taught, especially to Hong Kongers, obscuring its origins as a place of refuge and rebellion. When protests erupted in 2019 and were met with escalating suppression from Beijing, Louisa Lim—raised in Hong Kong as a half-Chinese, half-English child, and now a reporter who has covered the region for nearly two decades—realised that she was uniquely positioned to unearth the city’s untold stories. Indelible City is those stories.

We are grateful to be able to offer you an opportunity to hear from Louisa Lim as she chats with journalist and podcaster, Beverley Wang.
