Spring Poetry Evening


Celebrate spring with an evening of seasonally inspired poetry read in both Chinese and English. Come and listen to poets Madeleine Slavick and Rhondda Greig reading and sharing their thoughts of spring; Diana Bridge's fine selection of translations of classical Chinese poetry and her own work; Luo Hui rounding out with bilingual readings and a few prose pieces. The much-loved modern classics of Xu Zhimo and Gu Cheng will be juxtaposed with spring scenes from Tang dynasty Chang'an to the Wairarapa.

This Chinese themed poetry reading is jointly organised by the Wellington City Library and the Confucius Institute at Victoria University of Wellington.
