Searching for something to read in your downtime? Why not pick up one of the books covered in the MPavilion Book Clubs, and then listen back to the conversations via our podcast?

In December, Eugenia Lim led an interrogation into post-capitalist labour and the gig economy, looking at Heiki Geissler’s chilling memoir Seasonal Associate. Then in January, we were joined by our friends at the Wheeler Centre to look at all five titles on the Victorian Premier Awards Fiction Shortlist. For our final book club, the team at The Conversation brought us back to our roots with an enlightening discussion on The Overstory, Richard Powers’ sweeping ecological epic.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
