Poetry about country and healing in Kindred
A book of poetry might not be what you would typically reach for over the summer time, Kirli Saunders’ Kindred is a good place to start. Saunders, a Gunai woman, writes poetry that reads with ease and relatability, highlighting the moments in life that we’re too busy to notice.
Kindred is an overarching tale of journey, broken into three sections – trauma, nurture, and recovery, all the while portraying the role that country and language plays in healing.
Read this book if: You’d like to start reading poetry, but don’t know where to start.
