The Winter Readings Are Back!

I was going to do a blog post about British turkeys voting for Christmas (or, to put it in Marxist terms from a bygone era, false consciousness), but it's too discouraging - and negative. So I  shall blog about something good instead!

After a hiatus of several years, the HeadworX Winter Reading Series is back! Albeit in cut-down form, because this year it's a single reading:

You are invited to a poetry reading:

Winter Readings 2016 – Poetry Gees

This year’s Winter Readings celebrates the
return of Winter Readings itself, a popular event at
the City Gallery in Wellington 2003-2008. Each
event featured a tribute to an album or group.
This year’s readings form a tribute to the Bee Gees.

Sunday, 17 July 2016
Poets: MaryJane Thomson, Mark Pirie, Rob Hack,
Polina Kouzminova, Michael O’Leary and Jeanne
Bernhardt (Otago).

Venue: St Peter’s Hall, Beach Rd, Paekakariki.
Time: 2-4pm(see map)

Admission to the reading is by koha. Books for
sale from 2.00pm. No refreshments will be served.
The Main Street houses cafes and a bar close by,
for those who arrive early.

Earl of Seacliff Art Workshop (ESAW) will publish
an anthology of poems by the readers featured to
celebrate the event.

I hope to run a poem from this booklet as a Tuesday Poem next week.
