    The Murawina Centre accommodates 68 children and is located in the former infants building of Redfern Public School. It started in in Hollis Park, Newtown as a breakfast program by Aboriginal mothers who provided meals to struggling Aboriginal children on their way to school.   Finally, the rat trilogy and Dance, Dance, Dance are the last novels to consider. Returning to these earlier novels is a treat because readers discover some of Haruki Murakami’s earliest writing motivations. Both Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball, leave bread crumbs of the themes and concepts that Murakami tries to hide throughout the rest of his writing.

    The book that propelled Haruki Murakami to fame, Norwegian Wood follows the student years of Toru Watanabe and his experiences with two in Tokyo in the s, the novel was a huge hit among students in the s, as it saw one of the first depictions of student revolution, and inspired many with a passion for contemporary politics and social action. An Aboriginal women's initiative, Murawina grew out of a breakfast program for Aboriginal children and developed into a childcare centre, referral agency and meeting place, as well as a bridge between Aboriginal homes and mainstream education. Pollock, Zoe. Zoe Pollock is a historian.

    Children's Book: Tucker by Wendy Notley, Illustrated by Narelle  Urquhart Wendy Notley is a non-Indigenous early childhood trained teacher. She began working at Murawina Multi-Purpose Aboriginal Education Centre in Eveleigh St, Redfern NSW (otherwise known as 'the block') in   But as far as which book to read first, here's the thing: the answer really depends on you. My first Murakami book was The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, which I'm embarrassed to admit I picked up.
