Book launch

Acclaimed poet and author Michael Sharkey will launch his new book Apollo in George Street: The Life of David McKee Wright in the library.

As the publishers note “Apollo in George Street is a revelation. Not only does it tell the story of one of Australasia’s major forgotten literary figures, it also chronicles a surprisingly unconventional period in Australian history, when bohemia rubbed shoulders with the middle classes in the suburbs.”  Michael is well known for his award winning poetry collections and this book is a great introduction to one of Australia’s early poets David Mckee Wright .

Everyone is invited on Wednesday 10 October 2012 at 5.15pm to join Michael in the library. Entry is free.

The book will be on sale at the launch.
