has been honoured as one of Western Australia’s most courageous and inspiring women. She was one of the original boat people in the seventies and now works tirelessly documenting the stories of other refugees. Carina visited Spearwood Library during Refugee Week
to talk about her experience of fleeing Vietnam as well as the experiences of other refugees, some of which she has recorded in her latest book Boat People : Personal Stories from the Vietnamese Exodus 1975-1996.
“She was amazing to hear!!”
and “The stories were very touching and so hard to hold [back] tears”
, are a couple of comments made on the Libraries’ facebook page
about Carina’s talk.
For all those who missed Carina’s talk at our Spearwood Library can now attend her presentation at the State Library.
