Christos Tsiolkas: Class and Sport in Australia

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 23 May 2014

In The Slap, Christos Tsiolkas dissected modern suburban Australia with an unflinching eye. In his new novel Barracuda, he looks at class envy, politics, migration, education and ever-pervasive sport. Should we teach our children to win, or to live? Writer Malcolm Knox talks to Christos about the pressures of growing up.

Supported by the University of Western Sydney and Parramatta City Council.

PRESENTER: Christos Tsiolkas

Dates & Times:
8:00pm, Friday 23 May
