Sydney poet Brook Emery let me know about a book launch this weekend; detail below, sounds like it could be a good one if you’re in the Melbourne area on Sunday.
Sunday 23 September
J – Studios
100 Barkly St
Wine – Music – Free Entry – all Welcome
Poets Union Young Poets Fellowship Holders
Ivy Ireland, Incidental Complications
(to be launched by Brook Emery)
Ivy Ireland writes with poise, grit, depth and vision, negotiating the
shifts between the scientific and the subjective vernacular.
Nick Powell, of Fallen Myth
(to be launched by Jennifer Harrison)
Nick Powell displays a lyric sensibility on the edge of the surreal, a
romantic, pastoral bent tempered by realism and irony.
(MC: James Waller)
Nick and Ivy are terrific poets – forget the young. Their books are
striking and they are both great readers. It will be a good launch and
you’d be very welcome. Hope to see you there.
