From The Papunya School Book of Country and History (produced in collaboration with students and staff at the Aboriginal community of Papunya) to their award-winning history, Australians All, author Nadia Wheatley and artist Ken Searle have produced six books that all begin with the idea of Learning from Country.

 

In this Conversation, Nadia Wheatley and Ken Searle will discuss how these books were made in conversation with Erica Wagner, Children’s Publisher at Allen & Unwin.

 

This is also an opportunity to visit the exhibition of original artwork showcasing the journey behind the books.
