Congratulations to Tara June Winch for winning the Miles Franklin Literary Award with her truly remarkable novel The Yield. Already shortlisted for the Stella Prize and the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, The Yield went on to receive three awards at the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards earlier this year. This ground-breaking story of love, loss and language is clearly making it’s mark.
You can view the online award ceremony here and there are some fascinating interviews online with Tara June Winch on ABC, where she discusses both her novel and Wiradjuri language, which is central to the themes in The Yield.
