Celebrating NAIDOC with debut author Nardi Simpson discussing Song of the Crocodile

About this event

Celebrating NAIDOC Week

In conversation with debut author Nardi Simpson - Yuwaalaraay storymaker

About the Book -

"Darnmoor, The Gateway to Happiness. You feel some sense of achievement; that you have reached a destination in the very least. Yet, as the sign states, Darnmoor is merely the measure, a mark, a point on the road you begin to move closer to where you really want to be. Darnmoor itself is nothing."

When the town's secrets start to be uncovered the town will be rocked by a violent act that forever shatters a century of silence. Full of music, Yuwaalaraay language and exquisite description, Song of the Crocodile is a lament to choice and change, and the unyielding land that sustains us all, if only we could listen to it.
