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. Kirsten McDougall, Tayi Tibble, Mary McCallum, Ashleigh Young and Sam Duckor-Jones 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 and sausage rolls available.

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. The three-day programme includes writing workshops; poetry readings; talks by leading authors and illustrators; and a book fair including stalls with rare and second-hand books. There are also events specifically for children.
