Homecoming

Join Noongar and Yawuru writer Elfie Shiosaki as she discusses her latest work Homecoming.

A novel that pieces together fragments of stories about four generations of Noongar women and explores how they navigated the changing landscapes of colonisation, protectionism, and assimilation to hold their families together.

Featuring poetry, prose and historical colonial archives, Homecoming tells First Nations truths of unending love for children—those that were present, those taken, those hidden and those that ultimately stood in the light.

Wednesday 21 July, 7pm-8pm
