See below the Gallery of Photos from photographer Martin Christmas for the book launch of Travelling Through the Unexpected by Lynette Arden, on 10 February 2018.
The afternoon launch at Halifax Café started with Munetaka Umehara playing the Japanese flute, to the rapt attention of the audience. Judy Fander then introduced the launch speaker, well known poet, Rob Walker.
After the book had been officially launched, Lynette Arden and Maeve Archibald read a concrete poem, Cruising, from the book. Different meanings are evident when the whole poem is read. Lynette read the first column, Maeve the second and the audience joined in to read across, with much amusement.
Stephen Matthews and Brenda of Ginninderra Press, publisher of Travelling Through the Unexpected sold copies of the publication.
Jane and Jason of Halifax Café provided gourmet refreshments.
Thanks to everyone involved in making this launch so enjoyable for all.
