Wind and Weather

21 November 2012 - 5.30 pm for 6 pm

Wind and Weather is a new series of poems by former Poet Laureate and Devonport resident Michele Leggott. The poems explore a family mystery that Michele uncovered. Although he was from Taranaki, her great grandfather died in unexplained circumstances in Devonport in 1891 and her great grandmother undertook a journey by sea to take his body back home. The poems will be read in three voices, with Michele, Frances Edmond and Cathy Gunn. The poems are a work in progress and Michele is keen to hear from local historians who might be able to contribute their knowledge of Devonport in the 1890s to the story. 

This free event is part of the Devonport Arts Festival which will take place from November 17 to 25. 

When: Wednesday November 21, 5.30 pm for a 6 pm start

Where: The Depot Artspace, 28 Clarence St, Devonport

Entry: Free (BYO drink and nibbles to share)
