- THE DOROTHY HEWETT AWARD
A Story to Tell
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.
