Book Launch: Second Fleet Baby

Readings Emporium — Woiworung Country, Emporium Melbourne, Shop 1-016/287 Lonsdale St, Melbourne VIC 3000

We are honoured to have Nadia Rhook, in our beautiful Emporium shop, reading from her latest collection of poems, Second Fleet Baby.

This is a collection of poetry that examines birth and motherhood, with a consciousness that spans centuries. The poetry draws on the energies of 18th Century English convict women, including Rhook’s own ancestors, and questions our sense of belonging. Nadia is a Perth based poet who also lectures in History at Indigenous Studies at the University of Western Australia.

Manisha Anjali and Ela Fornalska will also be joining us on the evening.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.

Please book here.


We are committed to providing a safe environment for our staff and customers. Ahead of the event, please visit our shop pages to find our most recent conditions of entry. As your visit will be for an extended period of time, we encourage all attendees to be fully vaccinated.
