Texts in the City: Growing Up Asian in Australia

Listen to Texts in the City: Growing Up Asian in Australia

For our brand new season of Texts in the City, we’ve asked schools to nominate which texts on the curriculum they’d most like to see discussed. By presenting speakers who are intimately familiar with each chosen work, as a writer, reviewer, publisher or performer, we’ll offer new perspectives on these classic books, creating the chance to take the obligation out of – and put the joy back into – reading for the VCE. This week, we look at Growing Up Asian in Australia by Alice Pung with Andrew McDonald and guest Benjamin Law, who contributed to the anthology.
