We’re gearing up for the launch of Jean Kent’s new peripatetic poetry collection Travelling with the Wrong Phrasebooks at the Toronto Library in Lake Macquarie on Sat 29th September. Check out the Facebook event for more details if you’d like to join us. Well known Sydney poet savant Judith Beveridge will be there to crack the metaphorical bottle of bubbly over the metaphorical bows.
In the meantime, take a look at Queensland/Northumberland poet Paul Summers’ take on the book at the Rochford Street Review:
‘This is a book of love and of loss, of empathy & compassion, of celebration and remembrance, of trauma and attempted reparation, of bewilderment & understanding.’
Paul reviewed the illustrated hardback version and so also has some kind comments for artist Oliver Watts and even for Pitt Street Poetry itself. Thanks Paul.
