Author Mimi Kwa discusses The House of Kwa, an epic family drama spanning four generations.

About this event

Mimi Kwa ignored the letter for days. When she finally opened it, the news was so shocking her hair turned grey. Why would a father sue his own daughter?

The collision was over the estate of Mimi's beloved Aunt Theresa, but its seed had been sown long ago. In an attempt to understand how it had come to this, Mimi unspools her rich family history in House of Kwa.

Riveting, colourful and often darkly humorous, House of Kwa is an epic family drama spanning four generations, and an unforgettable story about how one woman finds the courage to stand up for her freedom and independence, squaring off against the ghosts of the past and finally putting them to rest. Throughout, her inspiration is the jet-setting, free-spirited Aunt Theresa, whose extraordinary life is a beacon of hope in the darkness.

As a journalist for twenty years, Mimi Kwa has been a regular face on Australia’s national networks ABC and Channel 9 - interviewing celebrities, politicians and business leaders — covering thousands of stories over the decades — but in reality, her life behind the camera has been far stranger than anything she’s ever reported on in front of it.

Join us to celebrate the first birthday launch of House of Kwa and hear Mimi's story of resilience, forgiveness and freedom.
