Celebrate Spring’s arrival with inspirational poetry read in both Chinese and English on 1 October at the Central Library. Come and listen to poets Madeleine Slavick and Rhondda Greig read and share their thoughts on Spring; Diana Bridge’s fine selection of translations of classical Chinese poetry and her own work; and Luo Hui rounding up with bilingual readings and a few pieces of prose. The much-loved modern poems by Xu Zhimo and Gu Cheng will be juxtaposed with classic poems from the Tang dynasty.
There will also be a chance for you to read your poems, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org before 29 September.
This Chinese-themed poetry reading is jointly organised by the Confucius Institute at Victoria University of Wellington and Wellington City Libraries.
