2016 Premier’s Literary Award Book of the Year
Bruce Pascoe comes to the Library to talk about his award-winning book Dark Emu; Black Seeds, Agriculture or Accident?
This prize winning book explores the history of Aboriginal land management in Australia prior to colonisation and how we avoided the real history of the country for 220 years, preferring to tell ourselves a story of stoicism and courage.
A Bunurong man, Bruce Pascoe is an award-winning Australian writer and editor. Published nationally and internationally, his works have won several national literary competitions.
Dark Emu won the 2016 NSW Book of the Year and was a joint winner of the 2016 Indigenous Writer’s Prize.
