This Saturday, it’s Ita Goldberger and Nadia Rhook as our features, 28th April 2018 at Perth Poetry Club.
Ita Goldberger was born in Israel to Holocaust surviving parents, a fact that had a huge impact on her life and identity.
She immigrated to Australia with her family in 2000. Ita is a musician (graduated from the Jerusalem Music Academy). She lived in Sweden where she studied social anthropology. Her interest in world cultures brought her to North and Central America. Back in Israel she built a family, worked in Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum, and studied, among other things, Hebrew literature.
Writing was always a huge part of her life. The transition to an English speaking culture was, and still is, a frustrating writing path. Ita published her Hebrew poetry book "A Grey Nomad” in Israel at the end of last year, and it is available there in the bookstores. Her translation of the book to English is taking shape, and some of the poems she will be reading this Saturday.
Nadia Rhook is a white settler historian, poet, and curator, who has recently moved to Whadjuk Noongar land. Her poetry has been published in Cordite, Peril Magazine, and the Decolonization Blog, and she’s featured at Girls on Key and Passionate Tongues. She loves poetry almost as much as she loves stories.
