Date: Thursday 28th March 2019 @ 6.00pm

Sue Liu will discuss her book Accidental Aid Worker.  A travel memoir of Sue’s adventures who stumbles into voluntary aid work in the wake of he 2004 tsunami during the civil war conflict in Sri Lanka. 

She teams up with a tour guide, a Catholic priest and a community of refugees and so begins a ten-year obsession with helping people in need.

Through tragic events, Sue meets the larger than life Geraldine Cox and spreads her generosity to help orphaned children in Cambodia.

This is the tale of a woman who bravely opens doors and thus has astounding adventures and enlightenments. All in the context of what can only be called an adventure story and an extraordinary life. - Thomas Keneally
