Stories that Matter
Lots of people said nice things to me at my London book launch but the nicest thing had nothing to do with my book.
Jane Smith, a librarian from Concordia Lutheran College in Toowoomba, Australia, happened to be in London that night so I asked her to come along. I’d met Jane back in May when I went to Concordia as part of a team with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) to create a book with 12 Indigenous students in three days. I know… what a great challenge!
I was there with Indigenous writer and poet, Kristine Ellis and editor, Kathy Mossop. This was a first time for all of us: workshop facilitators and students. I was nervous and so were they.
