No one turns up where they're not wanted quite like John Safran. Populated by an extraordinary cast of 'ordinary' Australians, his latest book, Depends What You Mean by Extremist is a startling, confronting portrait of contemporary Australia.
We all think we know what's going on in our own country, but this larger-than-life, timely, and alarmingly insightful true story will make you think again...
The evening will include a moderated conversation with John Safran, followed by audience Q&A, book sales and book signing.
Presented in partnership with UWA Cultural Precinct and the City of Perth Library.
