Slack Tide by Sarah Day

Slack tide is the turning point when a body of tidal water can seem uncertain as to whether it is coming in or going out. While surface water may be deceptively calm at this time, below the surface huge divergent forces are at work.

In the title of Sarah Day’s ninth collection the erm is an expression of twenty-first century unease. World events and global forces are an oblique presence in much of this collection in whose poems private and public disturb one another’s space and boundaries.

Sarah will be joined in conversation by poet and essayist, Pete Hay.

Thursday 29 September, 5.30pm. RACV Hotel, 154-156 Collins Street, Hobart.
