Denys Trussell in the library

In this month’s Glengarry Writers in the Library series, you are invited to hear poet, musician, essayist and biographer Denys Trussell at the Central City Library on 22 November.

Denys is the author ofFairburn(1984), the life of poet ARD. Fairburn, which won the PEN Best First Book Award for non-fiction in 1985 and Alan Pearson: His Life and Art (1991).

His poetry collections Dance of the Origin (1980) and Archipelago: The Ocean Soliloquies (1991, 2nd edition 1999) have been set to music and dance. Another poetry collectionWalking into the Millennium (1998) was short listed in the 1999 Montana New Zealand Book Awards.

Speaking to the Islands of the Ancestors: Four long poems and commentaries (Brick Row Publishing, Auckland and California, 2005), is Denys Trussell's seventh book of poems. These four poems are the composite image of a history that is the poet's and perhaps that of other New Zealanders whose ancestry comes from the northern hemisphere.
