Poetry Book Group 1: Geraldine McKenzie's 'Duty'

Interested in contemporary poetry but not sure where to start? Or just looking for opportunities to share your interest? Melbourne poet Michael Farrell will lead a poetry book group on Geraldine McKenzie's 'Duty'. 'Duty' is the first book to be discussed by Michael's blog: To take part in a live discussion all you need to do is read the book. (You don't need to know anything about blogs.) Bring notes, comments, questions, or just come and listen. But the more involved you get with the book the better the meeting. Michael suggests getting to know just one poem really well. Get the book early to give yourself plenty of time. Allow a couple of weeks for ordering if your local book shop doesn't have it in stock. You can also check out reviews and online discussion at the blog address above or look at Paper Bark's 'Duty' page
