You are invited to the launch of ‘When Embers Dance’, Katherine E Seppings’ first poetry collection.

Katherine E Seppings’ first poetry collection, When Embers Dance, published by Melbourne Poets Union, has been called ‘a fearless first collection’.

When Embers Dance is ‘an empathetic and hard hitting rendering of life in contemporary Australia,’ writes Sue King-Smith. Poems of debilitating drought, bush fires, animal exploitation and family violence are interspersed with ‘hope and quiet joy—a bar in Seville… the birth of faith in a spring garden and poetic musings over a blank page.’

‘The constant note sounded in Katherine E. Seppings’ poems is one of compassion,’ says Ross Donlon. ‘She is able to express her feelings in precise, unsentimental language and through arresting imagery.’

‘Poetry that compels – that challenges, and demands to be read.’ Peter Hay

When:              2.30pm Sunday 29 November

Where:             The Maurocco Bar, 4a Templeton St, Castlemaine
