At the Republic Bar and Cafe in North Hobart this Sunday: John Biggs and Anne Kellas. John Biggs's novel, The Girl in the Golden House, was published by Pandanus Books in 2003. Anne Kellas will be reading either prose or poetry; her collection Isolated States was published by Cornford Press in 2001.
Presumably there will be the usual open mike session too; the readings are planned by Liz Winfield and take place on the first Sunday of each month. Next in the season:
7th March: Gina Mercer & Julian Halls. Gina Mercer is a poet, novelist, academic and was editor of LiNQ before recently moving to live in Hobart. Julian Halls' book, Death of a Drag Queen, was published by Ginninderrra Press in 2003 (Rodney Croome's launch speech can be found in the latest issue of Famous Reporter.)
4th April: South Australian poets Cathy Young & Martin Johnson will be reading. Cathy Young will be in Tasmania for the launch of her Cornford Press collection.
