Elaine Pearson in conversation with Craig Foster

In her new book, Chasing Wrongs and Rights, the Australia Director at Human Rights Watch Elaine Pearson shares her experiences defending human rights – from human trafficking in Nepal to the ‘drug war’ in the Philippines to treatment of detainees in Papua New Guinea and in Australia – offering an extremely involving personal account of how far we’ve come, and how far we’ve got to go.

Join her on Thursday 8 September, where she will talk about the book with Craig Foster, a former Socceroo star turned broadcaster, social justice advocate and human rights campaigner.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – another reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it, too, by booking a meal at the Royal Oak before or after the event? One of Balmain’s oldest and best-known pubs, it serves a delicious range of food and beverages.

Chasing Wrongs and Rights will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, with book signings from Pearson following the discussion.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
