WRITERS ON MONDAYS - I Come from Palmerston North: James Brown
WRITERS ON MONDAYS
I Come from Palmerston North: James
This month sees the release of James Brown’s fifth poetry
Auditorium. We thought it was time to find out more about the
man behind the poems, and tease out the shifts and changes in the work
itself. Chair Fergus
Barrowman drags the poet away from his desk at Te Papa to
consider how work, world and words have cohabited and evolved between the
covers of his books, and to give the new poems a hearing.
Marae, Level 4, Te Papa (please note that no
food may be taken on to The Marae)
Writers on Mondays is presented with the Museum of New
Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, and additional support from Circa Theatre,
City Gallery Wellington and the New Zealand Centre for Literary
Translation at Victoria University.
