Peter Papathanasiou’s memoir, Little One, is a powerful story of family, love, sacrifice and an extraordinary secret. After emigrating from Greece to Australia, Papathanasiou’s parents found out that they were unable to have children. Papathanasiou’s aunt and uncle in Greece offered to have a baby and give it to his parents to raise as their own in Australia.
Join us to hear Papathanasiou, in conversation with Angela Pippos, discuss the amazing story of that child, family and adoption, and the tensions and joys between Europe and Australia during that time.
