Saturday 7th November, The Sky Falls Down Poets - Lucy Czerwiec, Lucy Dougan, Kevin Gillam, Fran Graham, Mardi May, Carol Millner, Emily J Sun, Rashida Murphy, Julie Watts, Zan Ross!

This Saturday 7th September we have wonderful local poets, Lucy Czerwiec, Lucy Dougan, Kevin Gillam, Fran Graham, Mardi May, Carol Millner, Emily J Smith, Rashida Murphy, Zan Ross and Julie Watts reading their poems from The Sky Falls Down: An Anthology of Loss, at Perth Poetry Club. We have usual open-mike as well.

The Sky Falls Down: An Anthology of Loss explores the landscape of loss and was published by Ginninderra Press earlier this year.  Editors Terry Whitebeach & Gina Mercer describe the work:“In this compelling collection, eighty-nine writers traverse their particular territory of loss and bring back travellers’ tales. Their skilfully crafted accounts are insightful, inspiring, amusing, heart-breaking, resilient and, above all, damn good reading and listening to. Inspiring writing by asylum seekers, bereft parents, refugees, bushfire survivors and others who know loss. “

The reading of poems from The Sky Falls Down also is a good lead-in and reminder of national R U OK? Day, later in the week (Thursday 12th Sept).

I hope you can join us this Saturday afternoon 2pm - 4pm at the Moon Café, 323 William Street Northbridge to celebrate with The Sky Falls Down poets.  Open-mike as usual.  Come early and put your name down at the door.
