Reconciliation Week – Country (Early Stage 1, Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3)

  29-May-2024      10:00AM
Live Event

Join award winning authors Aunty Fay Muir and Sue Lawson as we celebrate Reconciliation Week! Hear Aunty Fay and Sue read their latest picture book Country, as well as answer questions.


Students will have the opportunity to hear Boon Wurrung and Wamba Wamba Elder, Aunty Fay Muir and Sue Lawson read their latest collaboration Country. They will gain an insight into their writing process, hear about other picture books they have collaborated on, what it’s like being a published author, and get a sneak peek at another soon to be released book Always Was, Always Will Be!

Country is published by Wild dog Books.

Country is central to so much of
First Nations Culture. It is past, present,
future. Storytelling and song.
Country is all of us. Country is you.

Take a walk on Country. A delightful exploration of everything Country is.
