It's having its official launch, at which two books will also be launched, on Sunday 25th July. Full details below.
I should have blogged about PANZA ages ago, cos I've been helping them out with their website. But better late than never.
They already have an impressive catalogue, but they're always happy to accept your donations of poetry books and related stuff.
As well as the official opening, two new poetry books are being launched:
The Pop Artist’s Garland: Selected Poems 1952–2009 by F W N Wright (HeadworX), a remarkably varied selected poems by Wellington poet Niel Wright, covering six decades of his writing life.
Rail Poems of NZ Aotearoa, edited by Mark Pirie (PANZA/ESAW). The railway has been a dominant presence in New Zealand life for a century, connecting freight and people. In this new collection of rail poems, editor Mark Pirie presents a fresh and vibrant journey through many facets of the railway and explores its significance in our daily lives.
Contributors: Fleur Adcock, Marilyn Duckworth, Michael O’Leary, F W N Wright, Simon Williamson, Kim Eggleston, Louis Johnson, Jan Kemp, Fiona Kidman, Ron Riddell, Will Lawson, Jean Hamilton Lennox, Roger Wrighton, Hugh Isdale, Stephen Oliver, Peter Olds, M K Joseph, Rhys Pasley, Mark Pirie, Alistair Paterson and Peter Cape.
Special launch price of $15.00 for both books (Rail Poems of NZ Aotearoa is the first publication by PANZA’s publishing arm and is a free giveaway with The Pop Artist’s Garland).
Venue: St Anne’s School Room, 79 Northland Road (next door to the Poetry Archive at 1 Woburn Road, Northland, Wellington).
