Acknowledge Indigenous Literacy Day by joining award winning author Dr Antonio Buti live via webinar as he talks about his moving and at times heart‐breaking story of one Aboriginal man who experienced forcible separation from his family.

On Christmas Day 1957, Joe Trevorrow walked through the blistering heat to seek help for his sick baby boy. When relatives agreed to take Bruce to hospital, Joe was relieved – his son was in safe hands – but, within days, Bruce would be living with another family, and Joe would never see his son again. At the age of ten, Bruce would be returned to his Indigenous family, sparking a lifelong search for an identity that could never truly be known and a court case that made history.
