State Library, Woiwurrung Country, State Library Victoria, 285-321 Russell St, Melbourne 3000, Victoria

This event has sold out.

Join us to celebrate the launch of Wiradjuri poet Jeanine Leane’s new collection of personal and political poetry, Gawimarra: Gathering.

Cleverly divided into three parts, ‘Gathering’, ‘Nation’ and ‘Returning’, Gawimarra weaves back and forth in a dedication to strong matriarchs, and the core acts of gathering and returning – memory, language, history – resonate powerfully throughout. This remarkable book is the result of decades of poetic, political, and cultural work and reflection.

Free, but bookings are essential.

Please book here.
