Edith Wright (née D’Antoine) is very proud of her Bardi descent. She was born in Broome in 1954 and grew up in Derby, Western Australia. She is married with two sons and seven grandchildren. In 2018 Edith retired from a diverse career in education, which included Teacher’s Assistant, classroom teacher, Principal (at Wankatjunka Remote Community School) and District Aboriginal Education Manager. All her roles have focussed on addressing disadvantage and improving education outcomes for Aboriginal children and their families. Edith has published Full Circle, the story of her mother and maternal grandparents. Her energy has shifted from literacy to literature. She is excited by the growing number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander authors, illustrators and creators dedicating their talent and time to truth telling the history of race relations between First Nations people and Australia.
