Sam Dastyari & Tim Watts in conversation

This event has already taken place.

Wednesday 8 November 2017

Sam Dastyari, Australian senator and halal-snack-pack supporter, talks about his newly published book One Halal of a Story at VU Bar this 8 November, 7pm.

Come and see Sam in conversation with Tim Watts, MP for Gellibrand, at Footscray Park Campus.

Sam’s memoir is far more than just another book about a politician (yawn).

“As in life, Sam Dastyari's memoir is unexpected and unorthodox. This is the man who introduced Pauline Hanson to the halal snack pack and accountability to big banks.”

Tim Watts has honed his literary interviewing skills at the Williamstown Literary Festival.

Prepare to be entertained!
