The Novelist and the Poet

By February 23, 2018Poetry

Well I’m pretty happy to be going back to Blarney Books and Art in James Street, Port Fairy on the evening of the 15th March, 5.30 – 7.00 pm.

I’m even happier to be sharing the stage with¬†Meridith McKinnon, author of The Thai Wife, that book that a whole lot of us read last year and could not put down.

When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by your host Jo, and Dean, a glass of wine or juice, a delicious platter and the novelist and the poet each eager to get to meet you.

When you’re ready you can choose a front row seat, a comfy lounge chair or one at the back that’s not too far away from the nibbles.

Meridith and I will talk and listen and answer questions and read from our work. The conversation we have together will not be so different from one or two that we’ve already had as writers of different genres learning about the approaches and processes of the other.

We will be looking forward to audience questions but if you’re someone who would rather sit back and absorb, that is fine too. When its all over we’re happy to talk to you individually or sign books.

I have not been to an event at Blarney Books that I have not enjoyed. I hope you’ll feel the same after March 15th.
