by OLIVER PHOMMAVANH


Oliver Phommavanh loves to make people laugh; writing for children and performing stand-up comedy. He is a positive voice for cultural diversity in children’s literature and has appeared in numerous writers, arts and comedy festivals. His books include Thai-!, Con-nerd and its sequel, Super Con-nerd, Punchlines and The Other Christy.

It's hard being a third-culture kid and being very different from your peers, as Thai-Australian writer and comedian, Oliver Phommavanh, can attest. Phommavanh is of Thai descent and grew up in Australia where he struggled to belong. In this talk, he will speak about his experiences and how he used writing as a means to develop a sense of belonging.
