Love Your Library for Free Events on Valentine’s Day



Love Your Library for Free Events on Valentine’s Day

Dunedin (Tuesday, 5 February 2013) – Fancy doing something different for Valentine’s Day?

The Dunedin City Library and Port Chalmers Library are each holding an evening event that provides a romantic alternative to a box of chocolates or a dozen red roses.

From 6pm-7.30pm, Dunedin City Library will host the first of three poetry evenings by the University of Otago Poetry Collective, Poetry with a Pulse: Prelude, starring former Burns Fellow, Bernadette Hall and 2012 NZ Post Poetry Book Award winner, Rhian Gallagher. Audience members will be treated to a series of poems recited by these two highly-regarded local poets, with an opportunity to talk to them about their inspiration.

From 6.30pm–7.30pm, Port Chalmers Library will host English folk singer/songwriter Jake Wilson, whose latest album, All’s Well, brings the voices of the fated Scott expedition to life through a series of haunting ballads and songs. Audience members will have the rare opportunity to enjoy Wilson’s music before he embarks on a journey to perform in the Antarctic.

So this Valentine’s Day, why not pick a library, and let a genuine wordsmith deliver you something deep and meaningful?

Gordon Campbell: On DHB Deficits And Free Trade

Currently the world is looking on aghast at the Trump administration’s plans to slash Obamacare, mainly in order to finance massive tax changes that will deliver most of their gains to the wealthy. Lives will be lost in the trade-off. Millions of Americans stand to lose access to the healthcare they need.

Spot the difference with New Zealand, where DHBs are under intense pressure to reduce deficits within a climate of chronic underfunding. More>>
