Does My Face Fit Here?

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 9 August 2019
Author / Presenters: Randa Abdel-Fattah with Santilla Chingaipe

The enormous success of Randa Abdel-Fattah’s first novel, Does My Head Look Big in This? was an encouraging sign that young readers wanted to read about race, human rights, multiculturalism and, of course, about coping with school, family and friends as you’re growing up. She’s now turning that novel into a film and has also edited a new book about growing up Arab in Australia. Randa talks to Santilla Chingaipe about her writing, about diversity and about the importance to her of community.
