Janet Charman is an Auckland poet whose last collection was ’at the white coast’ a memoir of her time in London during the Thatcher era.
She will be reading from ‘Surrender’ a manuscript in progress.
Guest Musician: Lukas Wharekura
Lukas: I have been a performer since I left high school and I specialise in song writing. A lot of the music I write is written for a five piece but everything starts with me and a guitar. I love experimenting with my music in its starkest form and if any of you have heard my band before you may recognise a few songs. I’ll be playing a night of original, predominantly unreleased music some of which has never been played to a live audience. So come along if you’d like a healthy dose of original music and poetry.
Open Mic: all welcome to read/perform
