The Power of Language - Tara June Winch
Tara June Winch is the critically acclaimed Wiradjuri author of award winning novels Swallow the Air and The Yield. The timelessness of language as a window to the past and its ability to renew connection to country stuck with Tara after she read The New Wiradjuri Dictionary. The Yield was a story borne of this discovery that stayed with her through years of financial hardship after her prize winning first novel was published. It was only recently Tara had the space and capacity to write it down.
Tara’s work explores the power and importance of language and storytelling to understand identity. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from a powerful young voice in Australian writing.
