These are usually held in the shop in the early evenings, where you can enjoy a glass of wine with your launch speech, and take the opportunity for some after-hours browsing.

Book Event: States of Poetry: Tasmania (Australian Book Review)
The Hobart Bookshop, 5.30pm, Thursday April 6th
A Celebration of Tasmanian Poetry
With the Australian Book Review, we are pleased to welcome you to a celebration of Tasmanian poetry and the Tasmanian States of Poetry anthology, selected by distinguished poet Sarah Day. This event will feature readings from the six poets included in this year’s anthology: Adrienne Eberhard, Graeme Hetherington, Jane Williams, Karen Knight, Louise Oxley, and Tim Thorne. Sarah Day and ABR Editor and poet Peter Rose will also read favourite works by Tasmanian poets.
The ABR States of Poetry project highlights the quality and diversity of contemporary Australian poetry. Funded by Copyright Agency's Cultural Fund, this is one of the first federally arranged poetry anthologies published in this country. All states and territories will be covered with separate anthologies, each of them edited by a senior poet living in, or closely associated with, that state. The state editors will choose six local poets actively publishing new work (up to five poems per poet). The state anthologies will appear on our website with introductions from the state editor, biographies and remarks from the individual poets, recordings, and other features.
This work was developed in a studio managed by the City of Melbourne's Creative Spaces Program.
Where: The Hobart Bookshop, 22 Salamanca Square, Hobart
When: 5.30 pm, Thursday, 6 April 2017
