Event: Tara June Winch in conversation with Maxine Beneba Clarke

We are thrilled to have novelist Tara June Winch in conversation with Maxine Beneba Clarke in Melbourne to talk about her new book, The Yield. This profoundly moving novel is the story of a people and a culture dispossessed. It is also a celebration of what can endure and a powerful reclaiming of Indigenous language and the art of storytelling.

Our reviewer Miles called The Yield a ‘big hearted, hopeful book’. Read his full review here.

This event will be held on 2 July at 6:30pm, at Cinema Nova, 380 Lygon Street, Carlton. Tickets are $10 per person with proceeds going to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Bookings are essential and can be made here.

The White Girl by Tony Birch

Odette Brown, living on the fringes of a rural Australian town, has so far managed to keep her granddaughter safe from the authorities, who still regularly forcibly take fair-skinned Indigenous children away from their families. But when a malicious new sergeant arrives, intent on tightening the system’s grip on the few remaining Indigenous families in the area, Odette will discover how far she will go to keep her family safe.

Australia Day by Stan Grant

Stan Grant follows up his acclaimed memoir Talking to My Country with Australia Day, a wise and reflective look at reconciliation and the struggle for belonging and identity for Indigenous Australians. Australia Day asks the questions no one else seems to be asking, namely, who are we? What is our country? How do we move forward from here?

Talking Sideways by Reg Dodd and Malcolm McKinnon

With his long-time friend and filmmaker Malcolm McKinnon, Reg Dodd reflects on his upbringing in a cross-cultural environment that defied social conventions of the time – Finniss Springs. Situated in the striking desert country bordering South Australia’s Lake Eyre, Finniss Springs has long been a homeland for the Arabunna and many other Aboriginal people. Part history, part memoir and part cultural road-map, Talking Sideways reveals the unique history of this extraordinary place and shares the authors' concerns and their hopes for its future.
