Book Launch - Six Different Windows by Paul Hetherington

Bookshop, Ground floor

No bookings required

Everything in 'Six Different Windows' is immaculately constructed, each line, each poem, and the book as a whole coming perfectly together toward their ends. Beginning in the world of childhood—here, brutal, the adults mostly absent—and moving into an adulthood launched by travel and illuminated by art, the collection finally comes full circle, bringing the poet and his eye back to where they began. In this return, we find an Australia rendered by experience and exposure worthy of excavation, of an attention that gives rise to an elegant, sure-footed, home-grown art.                                                   Katharine Coles, Utah State Poet Laureate, 2006-12 You are invited to celebrate this volume with Paul Hetherington and Professor Jen Webb, Director of the Centre for Cultural and Creative Research at the University of Canberra, who will officially launch Six Different Windows. Tuesday 4 June, 6.30 pm National Library Bookshop, free Includes refreshments and book signing Bookings: or 02 6262 1424
