The issues and challenges of migrating to a new country will be explored during a free author talk at Amherst Village Library, on Saturday 7 September.

A Handbook for Migrants: The Good, The Challenges and The Lessons, by Ephraim Osaghae, provides information and advice based on his personal experiences. 

Mr Osaghae has lived and worked in Africa, The Middle East and Australia and currently works for a not-for-profit organisation.  

Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said the handbook is particularly relevant for the City’s migrant community.

“We live in a wonderfully diverse community, with more than 40% of the population born overseas and 30% of residents from a non-English background,” he said.  

“While all community members are invited to the discussion, the migrant community may particularly benefit from the information.”

The book talk will take place at the Amherst Village Library in Southern River, from 10am to 11.30am.
