Event Description

Discover the compelling narrative of love, resilience, and hope in "Broke" as author Sam Drummond shares his insights at Belgrave Library. In this poignant memoir, Sam, a lawyer and disability advocate, explores the intricate layers of life's challenges on the fringes of society. From broken families to broken systems, "Broke" unveils the harsh realities faced by vulnerable Australians, offering a raw and compassionate exploration of downward mobility and the enduring strength found in hope.
Raised amidst the diverse landscapes of Melbourne and regional Victoria, Sam Drummond's journey unfolds against a backdrop of adversity and determination. Transitioning from a career in broadcasting to politics and eventually law, Drummond's unique perspective as a practitioner of discrimination and human rights law enriches the narrative of "Broke," adding depth and authenticity to this powerful memoir.
