Book Launch: The emptied bridge by Jackson
24 August @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Jackson will officially launch her new book The emptied bridge (Mulla Mulla Press), and read poems from it and from A coat of ashes (Recent Work Press, May 2019) at the Perth Poetry Club on Saturday 24 August.
The poems in Jackson’s fourth full-length collection explore themes of environment, society, gender, sexuality, parenthood, and daily life: the climate change of the world and the self. This is crafted, literary poetry, aware of its contemporaries and antecedents; yet these are poems that anyone with reasonable English can read or perform, that can break free from their author, go out and do work in the world. They encode rhythm and intonation along with possibilities of meaning. Their music will alter the atmosphere in your head. (Publisher’s description)
