Author Talk - Robin De Crespigny on The People Smuggler

Join us to hear Robin De Crespigny talk about her book The People Smuggler

The remarkable and inspiring story of how one man escaped from Saddam Hussein's Abu Ghraib and eventually became known as 'the Oskar Schindler of Asia'. The People Smuggler is an utterly gripping portrait of a man striving to retain his dignity and humanity while saving his family and others from an impossible position. Its power and insight may challenge us politically as a nation, but most profoundly as individuals with conscience.

Day: 26 October 2012
Time: 1pm
Location: Rockdale City Library
448 Princes Highway, Rockdale
Please use the form below to book your spot.
