The National Aboriginal Writers’ Festival is still a toddler at three years old but the history of Aboriginal stories and its oral tradition goes back a long time. Amidst a whole day of celebrating the best of Aboriginal literature, join Jim Everett, Kerry Reed-Gilbert, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Lionel Fogarty and MC Cathy Craigie as they entertain you with eloquent spoken word performances. Other program highlights include A History of Aboriginal Writing, Doing it Our Way (writers who use multiple genres to tell their stories) and Poetic Justice (poets speaking revolutionary words). This is a rare opportunity to hear Aboriginal poetry in the park so grab a picnic or buy yourself lunch at the catering cart provided by the NSW Writers’ Centre to see pure poetry in motion. (KS)
