This reading group will choose works by Australian Indigenous authors for discussion. Both fiction and non-fiction works will be considered by the group. The purpose of the group is to provide a structured space for readers to consider works by First Nations’ writers and to explore their concerns and interests as well as discussing the works more broadly and sharing responses to them.
REQUIREMENTS: Preparedness to source and read the books which the group chooses for discussion; preparedness to take turns in leading discussion.
