Bukovina, Bukovina – Part 13. Excerpts from Kóka Rozália’s book of memoires. In 1985 Kóka Rozália ended up joining the staff of "Kisdobos"– a Hungarian children’s magazine. First they asked her to submit a story then she applied for a writing job there. She was hired without specific experience as a journalist. After a rough first assignment and a journalism course, she became a respected member of the magazine staff. We also learn about her collaboration with actor Ferenczy Csongor in joint theatrical performances based on Bukovina folk tales, also incorporating Budapest folk musicians. Her collection of folk tales, some of which she collected from informants, some her own creations, formed the basis for the performances. She explains the use of her family’s Bukovina dialect of Hungarian.
