Esther Birney Lecture: Antonia Reiseger and Jean Kittson

Antonia Reiseger and Jean Kittson – “A Poetry Reading from Our Cousins Down Under (Australia)” - prerecorded 

Poet and former English teacher Antonia Reiseger grew up outside Melbourne Australia. She has published two books of poems and in various journals. Antonia has always been interested in language and its relationship with culture, but it is not until recently that she has spent most of her time writing poetry. 

Jean Kittson is an extremely popular Australian performer, writer and comedian in theatre and print, on radio and television. She will read selections of Antonia’s poems inspired by her growing up years in rural Victoria, just outside Melbourne. She will also read works Antonia wrote while inspired by middle eastern poets, the recent events in her life and COVID-19.

Copies of the poems are available. Please email Glenys Acland:
For those members who may have questions for Antonia, Glenys will facilitate communication by email.
