Esther Simbi book launch
Next date: Saturday, 26 June 2021 | 06:30 PM
to 08:30 PM
Esther Simbi’s second book continues the story about the hardships for women in refugee camps, finding her feet in a new country, navigating family and relationships, living with post-polio syndrome and raising two daughters while juggling work, study, writing and political aspirations.
Esther escaped the Sudan civil war and spent 19 years in Ugandan refugee camps before being resettled in the suburbs of Adelaide.
She gives a frank account of relationships, racism, financial insecurity, the stigma of having a physical disability and being a single mother, and the practical aspects of day-to-day life, like budgeting, preparing meals and getting around.
Esther is an advocate for social justice, particularly for African women with disabilities, a prominent community speaker and has represented the Dignity Party in the South Australian state elections.
