Today is all about a party invitation –
I am very proud to be introducing Surf Sounds, the newest volume of poetry by Australian poet Roger Higgins!
Tonight we’re celebrating the book’s south American launch. Please join us the Café Musetti in Providencia for an evening of fine wine and finer words!
Jenno, the fabulous new owner of Musetti has selected some seriously nice wines to sip on his primary-colored sofas, and the evening is going to be as solidly pleasurable as Roger’s poetry.
Come on by!
Date: Thursday 23 April 2015
Time: 20h30 – 23h00
Venue: Cafe Musetti, Santa Magdalena 87, Local 1, Providencia, Santiago
Higgins is an
Australian who has traveled widely and lived in (alphabetically) Canada,
Chile, Papua New Guinea, Scotland, and the USA. Roger is an engineer
by vocation, and has utilized his pen rather more than his camera on
many of his travels, bringing together his physical and emotional
responses to the environments and situations which he has encountered.
First versions may be written on paper napkins or pieces of paper
tablecloths, the backs of boarding passes or the notes screen of a
mobile phone. Roger has been published in both magazines and journals. His irst collection Hieroglyphs, was published by Friendly Street Poets 2008. His most recent collection Surf Sounds, is published by Liquid Light Press 2014.
Higgins' poetry is both day by day and exotic. The poet washes his
socks and jocks when he showers. He prefers description, narrative and
irony to self-dramatization; there’s a lot more to Surf Sounds than
ocean, beach and desert.
~ Graham Rowlands, Poet
