Poet’s Breakfast

Janet Jackson giving a poetry reading in the square

A sizeable crowd gathered in Fremantle Library’s outdoor reading room on Saturday morning to enjoy performances by guest poets Annamaria Weldon, Rose Van Son, Janet Jackson and Kevin Gillam. It was a glorious autumn morning, the coffee was hot, the muffins fresh and the quality and diversity of poetry performed was a tribute to the talent within the local poetry community. Thank you to all involved for an enjoyable morning – poets, library staff and audience.

Comments from one guest at the breakfast… “…Everyone said they had a great time, and I noticed it wasn’t only poets enjoying the words. The spot under the Moreton Bay Fig was just lovely, too. I think the difference about this type of poetry event is – morning and weekend – kids, dogs, ring-ins, partners of poets, community – can be involved… Had a great time. Great time had by all from what I heard…” tricia g
