Book of the Week

Date Published: 01/06/2020

In Young Dark Emu: A Truer History, Bruce Pasco challenges younger readers to see a different version of how Australia was before British colonisation. Some of the themes explored in the book are contested but by reading and engaging with the text, including numerous historical sources, students are encouraged to reach their own conclusions regarding Indigenous and colonial histories.

A Teachers’ Guide is provided on the publisher’s website as support for exploring the book with students.

The book has been long and shortlisted for numerous awards this year including:

SHORTLISTED – 2020 CBCA Book of the Year Awards: Eve Pownall Award

SHORTLISTED – 2020 Patricia Wrightson Prize for Children’s Literature in the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards
