Chat Salon: Global Cultures with Roanna Gonsalves
23 October 2021 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Are you interested in discussing history beyond the prism of the Western world? Meet with other writers and readers to share your love of fiction and history centred around the other half of the globe with Roanna Gonsalves, author of The Permanent Resident. It’s time for more diverse voices and history to be heard.
Roanna Gonsalves is the award-winning author of the acclaimed collection of short fiction The Permanent Resident (UWAP) published in India as Sunita De Souza Goes To Sydney (Speaking Tiger). Her writing has been compared to the work of Alice Munro and Jhumpa Lahiri. Her four-part radio series On the tip of a billion tongues, commissioned and broadcast by ABC RN’s Earshot program, is an acerbic portrayal of contemporary India through its multilingual writers. She works as a lecturer in Creative Writing at UNSW, Sydney. For further information:
