Book launch: I Have Decided To Remain Vertical
Readings St Kilda, Boonwurrung Country, 112 Acland St, St Kilda 3182
We are delighted to be hosting the celebration of Gayelene Carbis’ second book of poetry, I Have Decided To Remain Vertical.
‘Navigating gendered-based oppressions and freedoms with skill and daring, Gayelene Carbis’s second collection is a joy to read. Spoken with an assurance of voice, these brave works are sharply observed. Were it not for their compassion and poignant humour, the poems could break your heart. A deeply-engaging collection from an award-winning poet.’ Anne Elvey
