Discussing Indigenous Writing at Adelaide Writers Week
On Thursday 7 March, our Foundation hosted an Indigenous writers panel as part of Adelaide Writers Week. Authors Ali Cobby Eckermann, Dylan Coleman and Jeanine Leane joined our Program manager, Tina Raye to talk about literacy, Indigenous writing and to read from their prize-winning novels.
The audience responded enthusiastically - some attendees said that it was the best panel of the festival.
“The books from ILF arrive and we read them together with families and babies over several weeks so that families get used to the stories and feel confident in reading them, then they go home with families to have in their homes. The program has been extremely beneficial to our community.”
