Tom Keneally is in town…

Author of Schindler’s Ark, American Scoundrel and The Tyrant's Novel (on asylum seekers), Tom Keneally is in Canberra to berate both sides of politics (and journalists for that matter) about their attitude to asylum seekers.

One of Tom’s central messages is that universal human rights are not matters of convenience – the challenge for leaders (and the rest of us) is to stand up for human dignity when it is unpopular to do so.

a universal striving
