Join Malgana elder Ada Fossa as she speaks about her book “Stories Laughter and Tears through Bygone Years in Shark Bay” this Saturday in Geraldton.

“My name is Ada Mary Fossá, born Ada Mary Poland on the 8th November 1934. I am a 6th generation Indigenous resident of Shark Bay and also a Malgana elder.
This book is a collection of stories from my memories of growing up and living in Shark Bay with input from some old time residents also included.
There are no airs and graces, no research about this book, just telling it the way it was when we were young and remembering what our parents and grandparents taught us and the places they took us to. It might give an insight into how privileged this present generation is compared to ours many years ago.”

The book is available for purchase from
