Go here for the programme. I am delighted to be reading at and chairing Selina Tusitala Marsh’s Call Me Royal event at the National Library as well as chairing Bill Manhire and Mike Ladd in conversation. I will be on the bus to Poetry at the Prison event, dashing to hear The Starling Poets, celebrating the launch of new books by Chris Tse and Anna Jackson and the new Seraph Press translation book, and hearing a cluster of poetry from offshore. Way more poetry here than last time – and a decent local presence! Always a treat to catch Hera Lindsay Bird read. And of course Tusiata Avia is a must. Check out the poetry reading list above to get in the mood.
