Andrew Burke and Lucy Dougan invite you and all your family and friends to a combined BOOK LAUNCH at Mattie Furphy House (next to Tom Collins House, Swanbourne) 2pm-4pm on Sunday 20th May.

Picaro Press has published Lucy's ON THE CIRCUMVESUVIANA and Walleah Press is the publisher of Andrew's UNDERCOVER OF LIGHTNESS: NEW & COLLECTED POEMS.

These collections will be launched by Professor Philip Mead, poet and Chair of Australian Studies at UWA.

Moonshine and sunshine will be served, with the occasional cosy biscuit.


About ON THE CIRCUMVESUVIANA:

A special tenderness and subtlety characterises these poems. ... Dougan's achievement is to remind us that place is a mysterious part of identity and that families - weirdly and wonderfully - are always sites of revelation.   - Gail Jones


About UNDERCOVER OF LIGHTNESS: NEW & COLLECTED POEMS:

Here is a poet to hail and to treasure. - Thomas Shapcott

This book is full of illumination, clear intelligence, music and - most welcome - a sense of humour
                                                             - Jill Jones
