Event Venue: Church of All Nations

Join us to celebrate the launch of Hana Assafiri's memoir Hana: The Audacity to be Free. Hana's memoir follows her childhood between Lebanon and Australia, her arranged marriage to a violent man, her numerous attempts to escape, and her ensuing career in women's services. In 1998, she opened the Moroccan Soup Bar, which would quickly become an iconic Melbourne institution-founded on the radical notion that marginalised women, together in the kitchen, can effect social change. Free, but bookings are essential.
