CLOSED: Jarjum Stories
Jarjum Stories is a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children’s books and storytelling. Jarjum [pronounced jah-jum] means children. Revisit childhood favourites – The Rainbow Serpent, Stradbroke Dreamtime and The Legends of Moonie Jarl – and some of the earliest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children’s books published in Queensland. This colourful showcase – part of State Library of Queensland celebrations of the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages – highlights the role of storytelling in sharing language, cultural knowledge and moral lessons across generations.
