Is it possible to come from privilege whilst striving for a fierce socialist agenda? Polly Toynbee believes so.

The prolific British Guardian journalist, commentator and broadcaster unpacks what it means to be privileged in Britain and Australia, and whether the deepening class divide can ever be transcended.

In an evening of conversation with Australian journalist David Marr, Polly will open up about her latest book, An Uneasy Inheritance, detailing how she still grapples with her charmed family history, and how she endeavours to dismantle the rigid class systems of Britain with her prolific writing.

This event is presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas and supported by Adelaide Writers’ Week.
