New speaker alert: the legendary Jared Thomas!
A Nukunu person of the Southern Flinders Ranges, Jared works as a museum curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art and Cultural Material.
With multiple YA and childrens’ titles under his belt (Calypso Summer, Songs That Sound Like Blood, Game Day series with Patty Mills), Jared’s books often center on the stories, histories and aspirations of Aboriginal people and communities.
Themes of gender, sexuality, the environment and marginalisation are also explored in Jared’s work, under the wider topics of belonging and culture.
