ANNA LO – book reading

ANNA LO – book reading

Anna Lo MBE, Dip. SW, MSc will read from her book ‘The Place I Call Home’ published by Blackstaff Press in 2016.

Anna was born in Hong Kong in 1950 and settled in Northern Ireland in 1974.

In her memoir, she writes for the first time about her extraordinary journey – how it was to arrive in Belfast at the height of the Troubles; her work with the Chinese community from the early 1980s and the difficulties its members faced, including access to health, housing and other public services, as well as racist harassment; her time as a social worker; her children’s experiences of life in Northern Ireland; her extraordinary political career, including the racial harassment she experienced; and her life away from the spotlight.

The book reading will be followed by a short Q&A.

  • Date: Fri 09 Nov
  • Cost: £10 (includes glass of wine)
