Kindling is for the Fire: New and Established Aboriginal Voices. Like kindle is to fire, so language is to story.

The panel discussion goes from 7pm-8.30pm and will be followed by the launch of Waiting at the Gate: A Memoir by Robyn Caughlan with Jason K. Foster (Magabala Books). Waiting at the Gate will be officially launched by the Hon. Linda Burnie, MP.
