Nelson word lovers’ event this Friday

If you’re in Nelson on Friday 10 October, you’re warmly invited to For the Love of Words, a triple book launch-cum-celebration of wordcraft.

The idea came from poet, children’s author, social commentator and organiser extraordinaire Amy Brooke of Summersounds Symposium fame.

Amy’s got a poetry book to launch, Deep Down Things. 

And she very generously thought, why not make it double as the South Island launch of I Think The Clouds Are Cotton Wool – Rhymes Committed by John Ansell?

(Which is good of her, since the North Island launch was five years ago.)

Add to the mix Nelson poet Mark Raffills, who is christening his latest volume Loved, Mis-loved and Loved Again, and it promises to be a revealing and  ‘edutaining’ night for word lovers.

Nelson Library, 5.30 – 7.00pm.

No charge. (Thanks to sponsor Nelson Institute.)

All ages welcome.
