Is low light a bit of a permission slip to be experimental, aching, bloody, bare? If you’re still thirsty for a well-turned word after the kids are in bed, throw on a silk robe and drop in to hear some of the
country’s top crafters perform in casual salon style. Sam Duckor-Jones, Freya Daly-Sadgrove and Greg McGee will share old favourites and new treasures to an audience of potential participants. That’s right! If you feel inspired, bring along a poem or short piece to share alongside our fabulous guests. Cash bar, naturally. Last bell at 10:30pm and sandwiches provided.
This is an event involved in the Featherston Booktown Festival on Friday 10th, Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May celebrating everything to do with books, writers and reading.
