Author talk: Kon Karapanagiotidis

Author talk: Kon Karapanagiotidis



Hosted by Wodonga Library

In The Power of Hope, Asylum Seeker Resource Centre founder Kon Karapanagiotidis describes how he prevailed over a childhood of racism, bullying and isolation – and went on to create one of Australia’s largest and most influential human rights organisations. ‘Hope is only exhausted if we forsake ourselves,’ he writes. ‘It is both our sanctuary and our destiny to live a life with love, belonging, connection and community.'

Wodonga Library is proud to present this author talk, in association with the Write Around the Murray Festival.
