Carpentaria (2006) Alexis Wright
Session 1: Wed 22 Jul, 3.00pm
Session 2: Thu 23 Jul, 10.30am
Author and activist Alexis Wright's 2007 Miles Franklin award-winning novel, Carpentaria, is an epic masterpiece of fiction highlighting the spiritual meanings and central importance of water to life in Australia. Set in the Gulf country of north-west Queensland and inspired by real-life complex negotiations over native title rights, Wright's storytelling is operatic and surreal: a blend of myth and scripture, farce and politics.
