    Visiting Indigenous Writers' Program - Kim Scott: "TABOO" book launch and seminars

    Presented by the Department of English, School of Literature, Art and Media, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Sydney
    Supported by the Wingara Mura Bunga Barrabugu strategy

    In August we welcome one of Australia’s leading contemporary Aboriginal writers, Noongar author Kim Scott.
    Kim Scott is a multi-award winning novelist. Benang (1999) was the first novel by an Indigenous writer to win the Miles Franklin
    Award and That Deadman Dance (2010) also won Australia’s premier literary prize, among many others. Proud to be one among
    those who call themselves Noongar, Kim is founder and chair of the Wirlomin Noongar Language and Story Project (www.
    wirlomin.com.au) and, with Hazel Brown, wrote Kayang and Me (2005). A Companion to the Works of Kim Scott (Camden
    House, 2016) deals with aspects of his career in education and literature. Kim is currently Professor of Writing in the School of
    Media, Culture and Creative Arts at Curtin University. His latest novel is Taboo (Picador 2017).
