Reading with Robert Gray at Bluemetal, 29 October 2010

Published : Thursday, September 30, 2010 | Label:

Robert Gray and I are sharing a reading at Bluemetal Vineyards in the Southern Highlands on the evening of Friday 29 October.

Bluemetal is the venue for the popular Poet on a Plate series. This time we thought, to celebrate the release of my new book Fire Diary and to anticipate the release of Robert’s forthcoming Cumulus, we’d try a different format at a different time: six till eight. Robert and I will read and talk a little about the making of poems. And we’ll have some books available for sale and signing.

But come mostly for the wine and canapes and watch evening fall along the ridge. And come, of course, for Robert, one of our great poets, and a wonderful reader and storyteller. Come and chat with us both.

A ticket will cost you $35, and bookings, they tell me, are essential. Call Bluemetal on 02 4877 1877 or email .

Bluemetal Vineyard is at 112 Compton Park Road, just outside Berrima. It’s well signposted. And, fire and poetry aside, it’s worth finding.
