Cape Catley invites you to join Kevin Ireland to launch Jo Emeney’s first collection of poems 6pm, Wednesday 6 July Devonport Library Victoria Road, Devonport

‘Johanna Emeney’s poems always contain a surprise. They look courageously at difficult subjects, allow abstract and particular to co-exist and balance reality with desire.’ Elizabeth Smither
‘Jo Emeney’s poems are the genuine article ... when they are just about to relax, they stand on tiptoe.’ Kevin Ireland

A runner-up in the prestigious British 2011 Hippocrates Prize for poetry and medicine, Jo Emeney lives on the North Shore after a number of years in the UK. She is an English teacher currently doing a doctoral thesis. Jo tutors writing workshops, including the Young Writers’ Workshops on behalf of the Michael King Writers’ Centre.
Her work has appeared in Metro, North & South, Poetry NZ and other NZ publications as well as in the Guardian (UK).

For catering purposes please RSVP to Devonport Library, Ph 4868529
