Wild West? The True Story of Race, Class and Crime in Western Sydney

The western suburbs of Sydney have often been coloured by stories of crime, poverty and violence. But is the most culturally diverse region in Australia really just a melting pot of drug-dealings, drive-by shootings and terrorist conspiracies? Or is there more to this complex and eclectic corner of our nation? Award-winning author Dr Michael Mohammed Ahmad speaks with two of Western Sydney’s hottest new literary voices – Winnie Dunn and this year’s Miles Franklin Award winner, Shankari Chandran. Drawing from their Lebanese, Tongan and Sri Lankan backgrounds, this is one discussion you don’t want to miss!
