From the 2022 David Unaipon winner and Festival Curator Mykaela Saunders comesAlways Will Be, a brilliant collection of speculative fiction that poses the question: what might Country, community and culture look like in the Tweed if Gooris reasserted their sovereignty? 

Resisting cynicism or despair, Saunders celebrates the forward-thinking wisdom of ancestors in a book that “writes Aboriginal people, dreams, radical hope and love into the future” (Natalie Harkin). 

She speaks with Daniel Browning about stories that imagine the ways ancient creativity can help blackfellas live with a changing climate and society.  

Free, no bookings required. Entry is subject to capacity.
