NEW ZEALAND'S NATIONAL POETRY DAY IS ON AUGUST 16TH. JENNY POWELL AND MYSELF ARE GOING ON A POETRY READING TOUR OF SOUTHLAND. J &K'S ROLLING WHISTLE-STOP TOUR WILL START IN GORE, TRAVEL ON TO WINTON AND END UP IN INVERCARGILL ON SATURDAY 17TH.
About to head off now on the first leg of the trip. Leaving Dunedin (in a car, not a steams train sadly) on a mild winter's day heading south to spend the night in Gore, then the reading tomorrow morning in the library.
Hoping to have time to post as we go.
