Alice Pung

Growing up Asian in Australia

Alice Pung is one of Australia’s most talented and celebrated young writers. A child of Chinese immigrants, Pung was raised in Melbourne’s western suburbs. She burst onto the literary scene when she was just 25 with her award-winning memoir, Unpolished Gem. A lawyer and teacher, she has written children’s and young-adult fiction, as well as a novel exploring her father’s experiences on the Cambodian Killing Fields. Pung conceived of and edited the hugely popular anthology Growing Up Asian in Australia, a collection of stories that give voice to the children of Asian immigrants.

Come and hear one of Australia’s most sought-after public speakers discuss her life, work and influences.

Medical Marijuana

Earlier this year the Federal Government passed historical legislation allowing the growing of cannabis for medical and scientific purposes. This is the culmination of a long, perhaps protracted campaign from the grassroots up.

With this in mind Camberwell Girls grammar School is pleased to offer you a chance to join our first In Conversation for the year on this subject.

We are fortunate to welcome as our guest Mary-Anne Thomas MP, Parliamentary Secretary for Health to the State premier, Daniel Andrews, who will explore this topic, and surround any ‘issues’.

Please feel free to join us for a drink prior to the starting time.

This In Conversation is open to our school students, teachers and community.
