A closer look at cartography, borders, landscapes and memories. ‘Position Doubtful: mapping landscapes and memories’ is writer and artist Kim Mahood’s long-awaited second book, described as ‘a shimmering, evocative memoir’ (BOOKS + PUBLISHING) and ‘an extraordinary excavation of the relationship, past and present, between settlers and indigenous Australians’ (The Monthly). ‘Titik Nol (Zero: When the Journey Takes You Home), is Indonesian travel writer and photographer Agustinus Widow’s third book and first to be translated into English. After ten years wandering the world, ‘Zero’ is the story of coming home and facing a reality he has always feared. His mother is dying. Part travel book, part memoir, ‘Zero’ has pioneered a new genre in Indonesian travel literature by allowing readers to experience the writer’s physical, spiritual and emotional journey. This panel took place as part of the 2017 NT Writers’ Festival–Alice Springs, Iwerre Atherre | Crossings, brought to you by the NT Writers’ Centre.
