Belinda Probert in conversation

Readings Hawthorn — Woiworung Country, 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122

Join historian Tom Griffiths as he chats with author Belinda Probert about her new release Imaginative Possession.

Seeking ways to understand her chosen continent better, Belinda Probert bought a rural property outside of Melbourne to observe the land more closely and learn how to garden differently. At a time when many easy assumptions about how we live and how our society functions are being questioned, there is room for contemplation of a country that is ancient, occupied for at least sixty thousand years, and young, a national federation for only twelve decades.

Belinda Probert, a migrant from England sets out to question in words and action how well she understands the landscapes she has seen and the people that have shaped them. She takes with her a set of writers who have asked the same questions, or provided interpretations of our sense of belonging, to test their words against her own emerging views.
