Special Events

ROBYN ROWLAND - SERENDIPITY AND THE CURIOUS MIND

In 2009 Robyn Rowland visited Turkey for the first time and fell in love with the country. After that, a silken thread drew Robyn through the countries of the old Ottoman Turkey. Mosaics from the Map, her 10th book of poems, covered these travels. Her new book, Under This Saffron Sun explores the Turkey of today. This presentation, combining photographs, poetry and images, promises to be a unifying and exciting journey of travel and literature. Robyn has written 11 books of poetry and her work appears in national/international journals, over forty anthologies and eight editions of Best Australian Poems.
