Saturday 28th November, Jan Napier + launch of Day Moon + open-mike! at the Moon and Zoom

This Saturday 28th November 2pm-4pm we have the wonderful poet Jan Napier, launch of her haiku book Day Moon and open-mike at Perth Poetry Club, VIA ZOOM and at THE MOON CAFÉ.

Jan Napier began to write in 2004. Her first two books were collections of short stories. However it quickly became apparent that her real passion was poetry.  Jan has published two collections of poetry, Thylacine (2015) and Listening to Frost (2020). 

Although Jan came late to haiku, she soon found herself intrigued by the intricacies and challenges presented by this form.  A fascination developed about the manner in which the world in all its moods and beauty may be mirrored in images and language as bonsaied as the form itself without losing perspective or acuity. 

Day Moon is Jan’s first haiku collection; published by Mulla Mulla Press.

Join us to hear the wonderful Jan Napier and launch of Day Moon + regular open-mike.

Launch speech by Gary De Piazzi.

Jan will also feature in the second half.  This is her bio for that portion…

Jan Napier has been infected by the poetry bug.  There is no cure.  Beware or be there!  She is much loved and all relevant Health authorities have been notified of her affliction.  An ambulance will be on stand-by!

The venue is Moon Café, 323 William St, Northbridge. 

A great place to be this Saturday afternoon 2pm-4pm.
