Archie Roach - Tell Me Why.
Archie Roach in conversation with Robert 'Birrunga' Henderson about his new memoir Tell Me Why
No one has lived as many lives as Archie Roach – stolen child, seeker,teenage alcoholic, lover, father,musical and lyrical genius, and leader – but it took him almost a lifetime to find out who he really was. Archie’s story is an extraordinary odyssey through love and heartbreak,family and community, survival and renewal – and the healing power of music.
Archie Roach will be in-conversation with Wiradyuri artist, Robert ‘Birrunga’ Henderson. Birrunga is the founder and principal artist of the multi-award winning Birrunga Gallery in Brisbane’s CBD, who painted a stunningly powerful portrait of Roach for the Archibald Prize a few years ago.
Books Plus will have a stall at BMEC with copies of the books for sale.
