This Thursday the 9th of March, join four of Mparntwe’s poets at the Library for Australia Reads. Storytelling is how we connect to each other, how we share, show love and express ourselves, reflecting our surroundings and our community. This intimate event will not only see our poets share their works but also provide a Q&A space for the audience to ask questions of our poets, get to know how they use poetry to navigate the world around them and celebrate and support this place we all call home.
