To celebrate the release of her new book, We Can’t Say We Didn’t Know, join PEN Perth for a lecture and discussion with acclaimed journalist Sophie McNeill.

Sophie will speak about the barriers to political justice despite the fact that we have more information than ever. She will look at examples from across the world to think about how ordinary people can change power relations and support human rights. 

The audience will have a chance to ask questions and think through our role as citizens today. Copies of the book will be for sale, and Sophie will be available to sign these after the event.
