INTERVIEW with RAFAEL EPSTEIN, FEB 5, 2020,
Raf Epstein: "I'm loving the concept of it as a modern Australian myth, and I'm completely converted to your inclusion of the the complexity of life in a very simple and a very beautiful package. I've come along way today because of your eloquence... Deceptively simple, beautifully illustrated. Wow. Azaria, A True History. That is a great book."
-- Rafael Epstein, ABC 774 DRIVE, Feb 5, 2020

ABOUT THE AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR


SEE THE ART EXHIBITION HERE



From the Author: "I truly believe Azaria's story is a founding and iconic tale in Australia's history. A cautionary tale of mob thinking, and the rush to judgement. Of distrust of the "other", and ignorance of our natural history and of the knowledge of First Nations peoples. These are big things to house in a children's story, and it's not a simple task. But sometimes I think the simplicity of a children's viewpoint is the best way to wrestle down some of these big ideas, and see them more clearly.
Yes, it's a story of a single sad event. But it becomes the story of what happened next. It becomes our story - it's our history, and I believe as a nation, we need to confront it, we need to own it and learn from it -- in the interest of a fairer, safer, wiser Australia.
What happens when the truth gets lost, and how did it all go so wrong?
I think that today's kids can surely only benefit from understanding these themes. Sweet nonsense will always have its place in childrens' book life. But I think that children can understand these bigger ideas. Kids understand when things are not fair. In fact, "that's not fair!" is one of the first protestations we all make. It's deeply ingrained in us, from the earliest age.
This book is a quite matter-of-fact retelling of a series of events. Children can see clearly how and where things went wrong. And I hope they will understand the importance of championing another's cause. After all, it could have been any one of us.
I hope that the book will invite discussion in classrooms, and at the very least I hope that it will impart the idea that an open mind is an essential accessory in this world."
