The authors of two of this year’s most anticipated new releases, Arab-Australian writers Omar Sakr and George Haddad, come together to discuss their debut novels about family, history and identity, and Western Sydney. Omar’s Son of Sin is a story of growing up queer and Muslim that illuminates the bonds that bind families, and how they can break. George’s unflinching Losing Face reflects Australian identity back to readers, while testing the notion that facing consequences makes us better people. They share the stage to speak with Sarah Malik.
