Event Description

Celebrating NAIDOC Week In conversation with debut author Nardi Simpson – Yuwaalaraay storymaker About the Book – “Darnmoor, The Gateway to Happiness. You feel some sense of achievement; that you have reached a destination in the very least. Yet, as the sign states, Darnmoor is merely the measure, a mark, a point on the road you begin to move closer to where you really want to be. Darnmoor itself is nothing.” When the town’s secrets start to be uncovered the town will be rocked by a violent act that forever shatters a century of silence. Full of music, Yuwaalaraay language and exquisite description, Song of the Crocodile is a lament to choice and change, and the unyielding land that sustains us all, if only we could listen to it. About Nardi Simpson Nardi Simpson is a Yuwaalaraay writer, musician, composer and educator from North West NSW freshwater plains. Her debut novel, Song of the Crocodile, was the 2018 winner of the black&write! Fellowship. Nardi is currently undertaking a PhD in composition at the Australian National University, researching the traditions of song and story in her beloved Yuwaalaraay homelands.
