Join us for a special open edition of Radical Book Club!
Celebrating the opening night of the Write Around the Murray (WAM) festival, audiences are invited to attend the September session of the Museum’s monthly book club program.
Our September title is We Come With This Place (2022) by Gudanji and Wakaja woman Debra Dank, a featured WAM author. Described as part memoir, part bush guide and customs manual, We Come With This Place has recently won four NSW Premier’s Literary Awards including Book of the Year, the Indigenous Writers’ Prize and the awards for non-fiction and new writing.
The session is open to anyone who has read the book and is keen to unpack it as part of a live discussion. Readers will later have the opportunity to hear Debra discuss her book in person, and ask questions, at the LibraryMuseum on Friday night and Saturday WAM events.
Radical Book Club is a Murray Art Museum Albury program of radical readers who meet monthly at the museum to reflect on selected titles that challenge conventions and norms embedded in society. Radical books and authors encourage readers to become aware of current societal challenges or inequalities and to contemplate alternative futures.
