Earthquake Poetry Anthology Launch

LtRZ cover – finalLeaving the Red Zone was launched last night at a packed and very suitable venue, The Laboratory in Lincoln (furnished with recycled materials salvaged from the Christchurch earthquakes).

These earthquakes have shaken up Cantabrians’ lives for the last five years, and shaken out many moving and impressive poems.

On this fifth anniversary of the deadly February 2011 quake, an anthology has been drawn together by our very own poetry editor Joanna Preston and her predecessor James Norcliffe. It includes work by all but one past poetry editor of takahē – David Howard, Bernadette Hall, James Norcliffe, Siobhan Harvey; and also a number of the current takahē team – Joanna Preston, Janet Wainscott, Catherine Fitchett, Erik Kennedy and myself . So, a takahē fest!

I sat down to browse Leaving the Red Zone when i got home after the launch and couldn’t put it down. Between its covers lie the hearts and minds of 87 New Zealand poets, the hearts and minds of a community.
