Author Talk with Bruce Pascoe

Past Event

Friday, 2 September 2016 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

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.
