Gathering Sticks: Lighting up small fires
Gathering Sticks: Lighting up small fires By Margaret Heffernan
A life in transition from traditional culture to a very different world, this new release from IAD Press in Alice Springs is a memoir that looks forward, as well as back.
Gathering Sticks was constructed as part of narrative therapy with Gerard Waterford and Frances Coughlan.
Margaret Heffernan is responsible for developing the written form of Arrernte, in collaboration with linguist Gavan Breen. Margaret developed the Arrernte ortholography at Batchelor where she received her diploma in linguistics, then went on to teach at IAD.
