About this Event
An invitation to booklovers to join a new in-person discussion group and read a series of brilliant literary works that have emerged from what Adelaide’s resident Nobel Prize winner, J.M. Coetzee, describes as the “unique world” of the South. Each session will feature guest speakers who will facilitate group discussions as we read and respond to works by Nobel Prize-winners Coetzee and Abdulrazak Gurnah, First Nations Australian writers Kim Scott and Alexis Wright, Māori author Patricia Grace and the Marshall Islands climate activist and poet Kathy Jetn̄il-Kijiner..
This free book club is hosted jointly by Dymocks, InDaily and writers and thinkers from the University of Adelaide, and participants will have the opportunity to enhance their engagement through Reading Guides in InReview and will also be able to add to discussions via a Facebook group.
