Friday 12th June, 7pm.
Prize-winning Trafalgar poet Rodney Williams will launch his new book ‘In this dusty rear-view mirror: 55 poems’ at Town and Country Gallery, Yarragon, on Friday June 12, commencing at 7pm.
This collection brings together pieces written over 40 years, several of which have appeared in major journals in Australia, New Zealand and the United States. ‘In this dusty rear-view mirror’ will be officially launched by Baw Baw Writers’ Network secretary Jennifer Fell; readings from the book will be performed by Jai Law and Steve Wiegerink. Singer-songwriters Todd Cook and Ricky Allan will perform songs co-written by Rodney Williams, while also backing him musically as he reads from his new works.
‘In this dusty rear-view mirror’ has been beautifully illustrated by Gippsland artist Sally Walk. Signed copies of the book and prints of Sally’s artworks will be available for purchase at the launch. Feel free to join us for what promises to be a most enjoyable evening.
