Living on Hope Street – Book Launch with Demet Divaroren
Living on Hope Street is a big-hearted, compassionate work. Divaroren is a ferociously good storyteller and every character breathes life, every character convinces. This book is an absolute joy to read.’ -CHRISTOS TSIOLKAS.
Living on Hope Street is set in Melbourne and is a deeply moving, unflinching portrait of modern Australian suburban life. It shines a light on cross-cultural friendships, difficult family relationships, racism and redemption. Kane will do everything he can to save his mother and his little brother Sam from the violence of his father, even if it means becoming a monster himself. Mrs Aslan will protect the boys no matter what – even though her own family is in pieces. Ada wants a family she can count on, while she faces new questions about herself. Mr Bailey is afraid of the refugees next door, not knowing that his worst fear will strike in another form. And Gugulethu is just trying to make a life away from terror. On this street, everyone comes from different places, but to find peace they will have to discover what unites them.
Join writer Demet Divaroren for the launch of her debut novel about hope, love and the power of human connection. With Lucia Nardo and Sherryl Clark.
