AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Here are our deadly poems and stories. They talk about life, adventures, hard times and happy times. They are powerful, intelligent, funny and sometimes scary. You'll want to read the again and again!'

'The Yirara Mix Book was written by students from Yirara College, during ILF workshops with Indigenous mentors Ali Cobby Eckermann, Lionel Fogarty and Lorna Munro. The book showcases the talent of eight young students, with a fabulous collection of short stories, poetry and illustrations.' (Source: Indigenous Literacy Foundation website)
