THE LAUNCH OF THE ANTHOLOGY WILD
Under the editorship of Stephen Matthews and his co-editor Brenda Eldridge. the weekend felt a family affair. Add to it the editor of the new Anthology to be launched Joan Fenney and her partner the owner of the enchanting East AvenueBook Shop even more so. And the launch of the wonderful Anthology Wild at the Tea Tree Gully Library, amidst poetry forums , the celebratory evening dinner of flowing champers, making good friendships, delicious food and Wild poetry readings and the Sunday poetry readings at the East Avenue Book Shop all added spice to create a feast and proved a great celebration.
For Michael and I the added extras were the tram ride to Glenelg Beach , lunch in the Adelaide Botanical Gardens, the visit to the block buster Art Exhibition The Impressionists on loan from the Paris Musee d’Orsay and having time to research my next project at the Universary Library and th SA State Library, a highlight on its own for the hype of being in the Reading Room sitting before the boxes of early material sacred enough for white gloves.
An impressive anthology with poems of over 100 Ginninderra poets, from across this big country of ours Thanks Stephen for your continuing support of Australian poets. Ginninderra Press goes from strength to strenth..
