Poetry Live is thrilled to present:
Emma Kahu Orion Walter and Bob Orr
Bob Orr is a poet of significant stature in New Zealand – he is well known and well-loved. His first collection was published in 1971, and his writing has been published in multitudes of collections, journals, and anthologies since. ‘Bob’s poems have a beginning, middle, and end,’ says John Pule. ‘He’s the purest romantic lyric poet of his generation,’ says Iain Sharp. Bob has a new book to share with us.
Emma Kahu Orion Walter is from Wairamarama, Onewhero. An unusually talented and humble singer, songwriter, poet and musician; Emma says “I try to give people through music what the whenua of home has given me.” Emma is a healing feast for the soul and senses, the treasure at the end of a long year.
