From the coffee house to the Embassy Theatre, one cornerstone of any literary festival is the poetry reading. This free event features five outstanding poets. Glyn Maxwell (UK) is an award-winning poet whose collections include The Sugar Mile and Hide Now. Kevin Connolly's (Canada) collections include drift, winner of the 2005 Trillium Book Award for Poetry and most recently Revolver. The visiting poets will be joined on stage by three New Zealand poets, all of whom have recently published new collections. Kate Camp's The Mirror of Simple Annihilated Souls and Geoff Cochrane's The Worm in the Tequila will both be launched during New Zealand Post Writers and Readers Week. Ian Wedde's collection, Good Business was published in 2009, and adds to an already considerable body of work. Join host Chris Price for an evening with some of our most celebrated poets. (dakvid)
