Notes History as Story: From My Place to Australians All...

Nadia Wheatley’s classic picture book My Place, illustrated by Donna Rawlins, has stimulated two generations of children to map their neighbourhoods and explore their community history. In her latest publication, Australians All, illustrated by Ken Searle, the author shows how children themselves have played a part in the making of our nation’s history.

Join us to hear Nadia address the question of exploring the past with young Australians of the 21st century. What is the best way to engage their attention? Why do we need a new way of understanding our past?

•5.00pm: The evening will commence with light refreshments in the Geelong Waterfront campus Library

•5.45pm: Nadia Wheatley's talk will take place in the Costa Lecture Theatre, Geelong Waterfont campus. Dr Leonie Rutherford, Senior Lecturer in Literary Studies at Deakin University, will join Nadia for questions and further discussion.

•7.00pm: Following her presentation, Nadia will facilitate an interactive workshop for educators on how to use Australians All in the classroom

A selection of titles by Nadia Wheatley will be available for sale at the event.
