Congratulations to Nadia Rhook for publishing ‘Second Fleet Baby’

Congratulations to Nadia Rhook for the publication of Second Fleet Baby (Fremantle Press, 2022). “Drawing on the energies of 18th Century convict women, including Rhook’s own ancestors, Second Fleet Baby opens raw questions of belonging. Through historical and contemporary stories of child-bearing, settler colonialism, and of nurturing new life during a pandemic, these poems cast off the patriarchal weight of history, pulling origins ‘from the seabed to the surface’.”
