WordFest 2022: Author Talk with Randa Abdel-Fattah

Randa Abdel-Fattah

Randa is a prominent Australian author, academic, human rights advocate, former lawyer and mother of four children. She is also an award-winning author of 11 novels, published and translated in over 20 countries.

Randa writes across a wide range of genres and actively seeks to translate her academic work into creative interventions which re-shape dominant narratives around race, human rights, multiculturalism and identity in popular culture.

Her most recent work - Coming of Age in the War on Terror – examines the lives of a generation for whom the rise of the far-right and the growing polarisation of politics seem normal. Randa will talk about the academic work that fed into this book, as well as her experience writing both fiction and non-fiction.

This is a past event. Video recordings will be available 2-3 days after the event (not all events will be recorded).
