Launch of Bowra at IGS

On ANZAC Day I was delighted to be part of the launch of Brett Dionysius’ new book Bowra – which was a co-winner of the Whitmore Prize. I was invited along o do a ‘mini launch’ of Confessional Box and also to read from the book as the warm up act! It was a great turnout in the historic Great Hall at Ipswich Grammar School – a fantastic space to welcome these words into the world.

Bowra is so rich with local stories and landscapes – I really urge you to go and get your hands on a copy! If you are in Brisbane or surrounds, there will be a second chance to hear Bowra being launched – as Brett will be a feature poet at the May edition of Speedpoets at the Hideaway in the Valley.

And now some photos from the launch day! Many happy poetry lovers were lucky enough to get their hands on both books and as an added bonus picked up a free book as part of our launch day special. If any of my blog readers are still interested in a copy of Confessional Box, please contact me with your email and I can arrange this for you. There are still some copies remaining from the initial print run. Alternatively, visit the Walleah Press bookshop.
