About this Event

Join Melinda Ham as she talks about her new book The Lucky Ones.

The Lucky Ones is a moving and meticulously researched book of refugee stories from award-winning journalist and former foreign correspondent Melinda Ham.
Though they are from different generations, countries and cultures, the families in this book all share one thing in common: they have escaped persecution in their homelands to find safety in Australia. Spanning 70 years, and tracking journeys from Iraq, Afghanistan, Poland, Tibet, Vietnam and Zaire, The Lucky Ones offers a window into the complex history of Australian refugee experiences.
More than 35 million refugees around the world are currently waiting to be resettled. In their own words, the people in this book are some of 'the lucky ones' who survived terror, detention, beatings and torture to reach a country that offered them a new beginning.

Melinda will be joined by Minh Nguyen, one of the refugees interviewed in the book.

Copies the book will be available for purchase and be signed by the author.
