Discover In My Blood It Runs, the poignant adaptation of the award-winning film.

Drawn from the critically acclaimed documentary of the same name, In My Blood It Runs is an adaptation for young readers written by Dujuan Hoosan, Margaret Anderson and Carol Turner.

It shares the story of Dujuan, a 10-year-old Arrernte and Garawa boy, and the critically important role of family, Country and community in journeying with and guiding him through life. Dujuan, now a 17-year-old young man, Carol Turner and Archibald Prize–winning artist Blak Douglas will be in conversation with Melanie Saward to discuss their relationship as writers and artists and the work of translating film to writing.
