Launch of Dropbear by Evelyn Araluen

I told you this was a thirst so great it could carve rivers.

Award-winning poet Evelyn Araluen’s fierce debut poetry collection, Dropbear, confronts the tropes and iconography of an unreconciled nation with biting satire and lyrical fury. Araluen offers an eloquent witness to the entangled present, an uncompromising provocation of history, and an embattled but redemptive hope for a decolonial future.

Celebrate this innovative collection of poetry and prose from a vibrant new Indigenous voice on the Australian literary scene, with creative readings and poetic responses from Araluen, Jeanine Leane, and Melody Paloma. Hosted by Jonathan Dunk.

This event is presented by the Wheeler Centre. The event is free but registration is essential.
