Who Gets to Be Smart? Bri Lee in Conversation

1 Jun 2021

Past Event

Join Bri Lee, best-selling and award-winning author of Eggshell Skull, in conversation with Triple J's Avani Dias about Bri's latest book, Who Gets to Be Smart?

Interrogating the adage, 'knowledge is power', and calling institutional prejudice to account, Bri once again dives into her own privilege and presumptions to bring us the stark and confronting results.

Far from offering any 'equality of opportunity', Australia's education system exacerbates social stratification.

Copies of Bri's books will be available for purchase on the night.

Bri Lee is an author and freelance writer. Her journalism has appeared in publications such as The Monthly, The Saturday Paper, Guardian Australia and Crikey. Her first book, Eggshell Skull, won Biography of the Year at the ABIA Awards, the People's Choice Award at the Victorian Premier's Literary Awards, and was longlisted for the 2019 Stella Prize. She is also a non-practicing lawyer and continues to engage in legal research and issues-based advocacy.
