Meet the author: Mark Isaacs
Presented by Brisbane Writers Festival
10.00AM Sun 8 Sep 2019
GOMA | Seminar Room | Ticketed
In partnership with Brisbane Writers Festival and connecting to ideas and themes in ‘Quilty,’ Members can meet refugee advocate, activist and acclaimed author Mark Isaacs. At this event Mark will talk about his latest book The Kabul Peace House (2019), offering insights into a remarkable and unlikely peace project established in one of the most war-torn, violent countries in the world: Afghanistan. After decades of war, few Afghans remember what it is like to live in peace, and many have never known a time without war. Yet, a group of Afghan youth, male and female, have come together to form a model community, a microcosm of how a new Afghanistan could be.
