BOOK HERE TO JOIN OUR CONVERSATION WITH RANDA ABDEL-FATTAH
TUESDAY, 21 FEBRUARY AT 11.00AM
Randa Abdel-Fattah is the author of WHEN MICHAEL MET MINA, her new book for teenagers set in Sydney. Randa will be familiar to teachers and librarians as the author of TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT ME and DOES MY HEAD LOOK BIG IN THIS? This is our first PRC 'in conversation' specifically aimed at secondary students and teachers.
Randa is an insightful commentator on race relations and her new book was inspired by her research into Islamaphobia in Australia. Randa has worked as a lawyer, human rights advocate and community volunteer with different human rights and migrant and refugee resource organisations.
She is a regular guest at schools around Australia addressing students about her books and the social justice issues they raise. Randa has also been a guest at international writer's festivals. She recently completed her PhD in the Department of Sociology at Macquarie University, researching Islamophobia, racism and everyday multiculturalism in Australia.
