Bruce Pascoe on the reception to ‘Dark Emu’

‘I had a feeling this book would reach a wider audience. It just goes to show that Australia is changing its mind about its own history—there’s a conversation going on, and people are using the book to open that conversation. There’s still a few dinosaurs about, but the kids in particular are all over it.’Bruce Pascoe on his book Dark Emu, which has just been released as a young readers edition and is now in its 28th printing since it was first acquired by Magabala Books in 2014.
