THE High Country Writers Festival is thrilled to announce that Callum Clayton-Dixon, author of the award-winning Surviving New England (published by Nēwara Aboriginal Corporation) will be appearing at this year’s event, part of a session on history writing at Waterloo Station for the High Country Writers Retreat, Saturday October 24.
Callum’s book charts the first four decades of the colonial period in this region and breaks through the “dominant myth of peaceful settlement”. He is also working on a dictionary of his ancestral language, Anaiwan. Copies of Surviving New England are available from The Makers Shed, 123 Grey Street, Glen Innes, open Wednesdays to Saturdays, 10am-4pm.
