I am absolutely loving it in Japan BUT one of the things I’ll miss in Adelaide is the final Literary Salon at the Tin Cat Café in Adelaide. The lovely Stephanie Hester will have both Amelia Walker and Heather Taylor-Johnson on the interview couch to launch their new collections and edify the audience about the psyches and works of these two wonderful Adelaide poets. Amelia’s collection Sound and Bundy is represented as an anthology of four fictional poets. Heather’s Letters to my lover from a small mountain town (it’s “mostly about the vibrancy and transforming power of love”) will also be launched on the same night.
This is the final Salon and it’s FREE.
If I were not in Himeji I’d be there myself. (And I’d get to say g’day to Bel Schenk again or possibly schmooze up to David Reiter & ask him to get Interactive Press to publish a poetry collection for me.)
If you’re in Adelaide you should definitely book and take my place.
Poetry, scintillating company and beer, wine and nibbles provided? Sounds too good to be true…
