My latest book of poems, First… Then…, is on sale now.
To buy your copy, go to Ginninderra Press , scroll aaaaallll the way down to Melinda Smith, find my third book ‘First… Then…’ and click BUY NOW.
If you fancy a sneak preview, some poems from the book are on my other blog CircleQuirk. Enjoy.
If you’re free and in Canberra tomorrow night or the night after, you are cordially invited to a launch and a reading.
The launch is on Wednesday 11 April at Smiths (no relation!) Alternative Bookshop, Alinga St Civic, at 6.30 for 7pm. Poet and novelist Alan Gould will be doing the honours. Light refreshments provided, buy your own drinks at the bar.
The night before (Tuesday 10 April) I will be doing a poetry reading as part of the regular series at The Gods Cafe at ANU. Kickoff 8pm. I will be reading some from the book and some new stuff as yet uncollected. Also reading will be PS Cottier and Russell Erwin, both awesome poets and great readers. Should be a fun night.
Love to see you at either, or both !
