Top new poet to visit
Next live poet: Lynn Renner.
Award-winning Raumati poet Lynn Jenner will be
a special guest at the next Hawke's Bay Live Poets
Society meeting on Monday, August 8.
Jenner won the Jessie Mackay best first book
award for poetry for her work, Dear Sweet Harry,
at the New Zealand Post Book Awards in June,
and received her prize in Wellington last week.
The book was a compilation of different types of
writing, Jenner said. Her poetry is woven with her
family history, such as the letter from her great-
grandmother to Jenner's grandfather, Harry
Boock, kept by him until he was in his 80s and
then, tissue thin, passed on to her mother.
New Zealand Post Book Awards judging panel
convener Paul Diamond, said they found Jenner's
work a fascinating and quite original miscellany of
lyric poems, short prose texts, historical-
documentary material, and autobiographical
Dear Sweet Harry also won the prestigious
Adam Foundation Prize before being published,
when Jenner handed it in as a folio while studying
at the International Institute of Modern Letters at
The Live Poets meeting is on August 8, at the
Community Arts Centre in Russell St, Hastings.
Doors open at 7.30pm, and poetry starts at 8pm.
The public are asked to bring a plate of finger food
for supper, and to leave a koha at the door.

The star himself says people can expect to see
Flaxmere in a positive light in the documentary.
I was privy to a private screening while I was
in Auckland. It's quite a tear jerker,'' says O'Keefe.
I hope it makes our people proud.''

up-and-coming Maori director Ihakara Wilson,
and has been produced by Notable Pictures.
