READING FOR RECONCILIATION
HOW DOES R4R WORK?
Before each meeting, we all read a particular title, then come together to discuss what we ave learned from it.
For March 2, the title is “Auntie Rita” by Jackie Huggins.
We try to select titles that are available from various public libraries. A list of titles for future meetings will be available at the March meeting.
We do not try to read many “heavy”, scholarly tomes, but principally biographies and autobiographies of Indigenous people – some well known, some not.
We have been fortunate to have had Jackie Huggins, Albert Holt, Thom Blake and Timothy Trudgen come to speak about their books and experiences – we hope to continue this.
If you need to find out more, please eMail Helen Carrick – firstname.lastname@example.org
Reading for Reconciliation (R4R) is MORE than “just another book club”, we
seek to expand knowledge, understanding and empathy of contemporary
Indigenous issues in an informal, friendly setting
ANYONE is welcome – whether familiar with the issues (we can always learn
more) or not: R4R includes students and retirees and those in between, from
a wide variety of backgrounds and beliefs; R4R has no political affiliations
We have been meeting for the last 4 years in the Western Suburbs of
Brisbane, but have now decided to meet in a more central location at the
State Library of Queensland: in the Loris Williams Room within kuril
dhagun – the Indigenous Knowledge Centre on Level 1
Sunday mornings, 10.30 – 12.30, at approximately 6 weekly intervals.
In 2008 the dates are:
March 2; April 20; June 1; July 20; August 31; October 5; November 16; and December 7
