Looking forward to reading in Palmerston North with these wonderful Cuba Press poets on Tuesday night 6:30pm 27th October 2020 at the Palmerston North City Library. I will be reading from my new book, Reading the Signs.

I started writing this book while I held the Ema Saiko Poetry Fellowship at NZ Pacific Studio in 2014. Now it’s becoming a real thing, thanks to The Cuba Press. The poetry sequence in the book deals with loss and recovery, climate change and gender fluidity. Images (including this remarkable cover) are by the inimitable Neil Johnstone, who will also be playing music with Steve Burridge on the day. The launch date coincides with the last day of Neil’s ‘Chalk Dogs Have No Names’ exhibition – great opportunity for art, music, poetry and a drink in convivial company. 1pm 24 October 2020 at Potocki Paterson in Dixon St. I’d love to see you there. Bring your friends!

So – the Pegasus Books poetry readings are back on in Wellington and this Friday 9th October, I have the great pleasure to be reading with Dinah Hawken, Helen Heath and Sam Duckor-Jones. Hurrah!
