Writers on Mondays: Unacknowledged Legislators

Ticket Information

All Ages

This week at Writers on Mondays: Hinemoana Baker, Tracey Slaughter, and James Brown.

Auden's idea that 'poetry makes nothing happen' has been vigorously challenged by recent events in Aotearoa, and Hinemoana Baker, James Brown, and Tracey Slaughter are adept at creating compelling happenings in language. Hear three poets at the top of their game read from their recent work and discuss what poetry can do with publisher Fergus Barrowman. How does a poem talk back to its times, while remaining news that stays news? Are poets really, as Shelley insisted, the 'unacknowledged legislators of the world'?

Writers on Mondays events are open to everyone and free of charge.

Writers on Mondays is presented by the International Institute of Modern Letters and The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. The 2024 series will run from 12.15—1.15 pm each Monday from 8 July to 30 September 2024 at Te Papa Tongarewa and Circa Theatre, with two special evening sessions at Meow.
