Saturday 9th February, Flora and Laurie Smith!

This Saturday 9th February 2019 we have two wonderful poets, Flora and Laurie Smith, and open-mike.

Flora Smith wrote short stories and WA history before turning to poetry 14 years ago.  Her poetry has been published throughout Australia and she has just launched her first solo collection, Blind Girl Counting.  She was selected for the AP Cafe Poets program in 2013 and for the last 7 years she has helped her muso friend Jane Cornes to run the Monday Supperclub, a place where people go to enjoy good pub grub food, excellent poetry and wonderful music.

Laurie Smith is a retired zoologist and Honorary Associate of the Western Australian Museum.  His work there spanned more than forty years and included the development and management of the Museum’s collections through field work.  His scientific work includes publications on the ecology and systematics of terrestrial vertebrates in Western Australia and Indonesia.  Another of his interests is the history of Western Australia, especially the impact of the maritime expeditions of the nineteenth century.  His poetry and essays have been published in various Australian journals, including Westerly, Tamba and Landscapes: the Journal of the International Centre for Landscape and Language.
