My latest podcast is a conversation with well known author Patti Miller.
we talked about one of her memoirs, and about her writing workshops.
Patti grew up in the town of Wellington in Western NSW.
A few years ago Patti noticed a news item about the first post-Mabo Native Title claim made by the Wiradjuri in Wellington Valley...
She began to wonder where she belonged in the story of the town.
It led her to the question at the heart of Australian identity –
Who are we in relation to our cherished but stolen country?
Feeling compelled to return to the valley, Patti uncovered a complex story of
indigenous and white politics, family mythologies and the power of place; a story that is both an individual search for connection and identity, and a universal exploration of country and belonging.
