In one hour: I did a mad dash up Queen Street to catch the launch of Siobhan Harvey’s wonderful new poetry collection and then a mad dash back down Queen Street to catch Corneila Funke reading (I had just spent the day with Cornelia showing my favourite haunts on the West Coast). So I missed part of the launch and the reading but my early morning runs at Bethells paid off!
Siobhan’s launch, fittingly, was a special occasion for a special book– a book I plan to write about soon! Lots of Auckland poets came in support, including Janet Charman who launched the book with verve and tantalising extracts.
