I was sorry to not make it to see/hear Jennifer Compton read today at the Ballroom in Newtown. She's always an excellent reader. I'm sure it was popular, and I imagine that, like every month I think, there was standing room only.
I'm afraid I'm probably not going to make it to the Poetry Society meeting this month either, but you can! It's tomorrow night (Monday 21) at 7.30, upstairs at the Thistle Inn, 3 Mulgrave Street.
It will begin with the AGM, and then will feature five poets, reading five poems each: Jack Duggan, Anne Harre, Tim Jones, Sugu Pillay, and Mercedes Webb-Pullman. Free entry.
