Siren's Call
Siren’s Call

Siren’s Call is a tale of Yvette Wroby’s two families: the family she was born into and the family that is the St Kilda Football Club. It’s a story about the bond between Yvette and her mother Elfie, and a wider tale of how her mother’s and father’s families survived the Second World War to make a rich, fulfilling life in Australia; of how Yvette’s many aunts and uncles and siblings made her who she is today. It’s also a story about stories – of how people in all walks of life across Australia came to cherish the red, white and black of the St Kilda Football Club or other clubs, of what life circumstances brought them to their football team. Yvette spends a year of weekends travelling the country to discover what has pulled her into that community, but returns to her mum during the week to sustain her through cancer treatments. In her busy life she handles the day-to-day responsibilities of caring for her older children, her relatives and her community. Siren’s Call is a love story about family and footy and those things that bring us all together.

Footy Town
Footy Town

Footy Town is a collection of football yarns from around the nation; stories which celebrate footy at its most local: from New Norfolk to the Tiwi Islands, from Rockhampton to Kalgoorlie, from Edwardstown to Fitzroy, and all the way to Mangoplah Cookardinia United.

Written with great love by players, has-beens and fans, they tell of footy clubs and the people who’ve made them, whether in the suburbs or the bush.

They paint a vivid picture of footy’s rich culture; a picture of mud and dust; of Dencorub and the clack of stops; of lumpy back pockets and racehorse half-forwards; of spiralling torps and once-upon-a-time drop kicks; of savs bubbling away forever.

This is footy; this is Australia’s Game.
