Sisonke Msimang will be in conversation with Andrew Leigh MP on Sisonke’s new book, Always Another Country: A Memoir of Exile and Home. The vote of thanks will be given by the South African High Commissioner, Her Excellency Ms Beryl Rose Sisulu.

Sisonke Msimang was born in exile, the daughter of South African freedom fighters. Always Another Country is the story of a young girl’s path to womanhood-a journey that took her from Africa to America and back again, then on to a new home in Australia. This is a coming-of-age memoir with no holds barred honesty.”

Sisonke Msimang was born and raised in Zambia, Kenya and Canada before studying in the US.
