AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In A Story to Tell, artist Laurel Nannup brings to life her childhood in a large Aboriginal family.

'While her stories include a time spent at the Wandering Mission, their main focus is on memories of family life: picnics, roaming through the bush, sharing campfire tales, and events such as buying a new dress and her First Communion.

'A Story to Tell is illustrated with Laurel's striking woodcuts and etchings, which, together with a selection of photographs, complement the warm and affectionate humour of her story.' (Publication summary)

Notes

  • Dedication: For my son Brett Nannup, and his daughter Lily Wilson. For my son John Williams and his children. For my son Charles Williams and his children. And to my parents Renee and Peter Nannup, who have long since passed away.
