Book launch: Against Separation Creek & Bite of a bluebottle

Readings Carlton — 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053

Mary Crooks, Director of Victorian Women’s Trust, will launch Hermina Burns' poetry books.

Against Separation Creek explores the inner landscape of grief and the difficulties of existing in a world which consists of loss and absence – taking us on an intimate journey through illness, the mysterious finality of death, and having to come to terms with loving a ‘gone thing’.

Bite of a bluebottle reflects on what it means to be a woman – as daughter, mother, wife, and self. Drawing on a lifetime of memories, these poems contemplate the everyday and the extraordinary to reveal the hidden lives of women – both now and in the past – while posing important questions.

Free, no booking required.
