Stan Grant in conversation with Nam Le
Melbourne Athenaeum, 188 Collins Street, Melbourne
We are delighted to have bestselling author Stan Grant in Melbourne for one night only to talk about his two new books, Australia Day and On Identity. Grant will be in conversation with Nam Le, author of The Boat.
In both of his new books Grant asks why, when it comes to identity, he is asked to choose between black and white.
Tribalism, nationalism and sectarianism are dividing the world into ‘us’ and ‘them’. Grant argues that it is time to leave identity behind and to embrace cosmopolitanism.
This event will run from 6:30pm to 8pm. Please book here.
