Oliver Phommavanh is going to Gleebooks Glebe to talk about his new middle grade book, What About Thao?. There will be delicious food and truckloads of fun!
What About Thao? is a funny and heartfelt novel for 10+ about a city kid in a small country town who’s enjoying being the new kid at his tiny two-teacher school – until Kadir arrives and things get interesting!
In his signature style, Oliver creates a fabulously diverse and heartfelt duo in Thao and Kadir and their sometimes hilarious and sometimes heart-wrenching dilemmas of culture and belonging in a remote rural community. Throw in some slam poetry and it might just end in a lifelong friendship and a whole lot more understanding.
