Crossing the Farak RIver ft. Michelle Aung Thin

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Author Michelle Aung Thin was born in Burma at a time of great unrest in the country. Her parents brought her to Ottawa where she grew up. She now lives in Australia and through her work at RMIT University in Melboure, explores many critical aspects of social and cultural life much of it focused on Burma, the country now known as Myanamah. Her latest YA novel “Crossing the Farak River”, was released in April 2020 and places us in the centre of some of that important conversation.
