Bestselling author and speaker, Abbas Nazari, fled the Taliban in Afghanistan as a child, and was resettled in New Zealand after his family were rescued by the Tampa container ship in 2001. In 2019, Abbas was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to the United States, where he graduated with a Master's in Security Studies from Georgetown University, Washington DC. His memoir, After the Tampa: From Afghanistan to New Zealand (Allen & Unwin, 2021), is a #1 bestseller. Abbas is a sought-after speaker and media commentator, a prominent advocate for refugees, and has recently been named a semi-finalist for the 2022 University of Canterbury Young New Zealander of the Year. Abbas speaks about his journey, overcoming adversity, and how him and his family were able to build a new life in New Zealand.

Abbas has also been nominated for Young New Zealander of the year 2022.

All tickets include drinks and nibbles.
