Meet author Ashley Kalagian Blunt in conversation with Katherine Arguile live via webinar as she discusses her wonderfully eccentric account of how an exemplary Canadian does her very best to be a better Australian.

When Ashley persuades her new husband Steve to leave snowy Canada and join her for a year Down Under, she looks forward to an easy transition. After all, Australia’s just Canada with more sunshine and strange animals, right? But they soon discover things aren’t so simple.

For the sake of her marriage and her happiness, Ashley must find an Australia she can belong to: she decides to travel the country, learn its history, decode its cultural quirks and connect with as many residents as she can meet. How to Be Australian is a remarkable memoir, at once familiar and faraway, that shines a fresh, funny and fascinating light onto the country we think we know.
