Event description
Join writer, Claire Halliday, in conversation with acclaimed author, poet and social commentator, Dr Anita Heiss.

About this event

In this special online event Anita will discuss her writing career and her latest historical novel, Bila Yarrudhanggalangdhuray, which draws on real-life events from 1852 and features the Wiradjuri language to tell a powerful story of 'love, loss and belonging.'

Anita is a proud member of the Wiradjuri Nation of central New South Wales and is one of Australia's most prolific authors, with books published across many genres, including non-fiction, historical fiction, commercial fiction and children's literature.

Her memoir Am I Black Enough for You? was a finalist in the 2012 Human Rights Awards and she was a finalist in the 2013 Australian of the Year Awards (Local Hero). As an advocate for Indigenous literacy, Anita has worked in remote communities as a role model and encouraging young Indigenous Australians to write their own stories.

Anita is in conversation with Claire Halliday, a freelance journalist and author of Things My Mother Taught Me and Things My Father Taught Me.

This event is brought to you by East Gippsland Shire Libraries, Latrobe City Libraries, Wellington Shire Libraries and West Gippsland Regional Library Corporation.
