AFTERGLOW: Two Or More Islands

AFTERGLOW: Two Or More Islands

On Monday the 20th of June, Unity Books was booming with friends and family of Diana Bridge, all gathered for the launch of her latest poetry collection, Two or More Islands. After a heart-warming welcome from Unity’s Jacqui Brokenshaw, we heard from Otago University Press co-publisher, Vanessa Manhire. Elizabeth Caffin was then on hand to officially launch the book into the world with warm words. Diana herself continued the official proceedings with poems and cameo appearances from children and grandchildren. In classic launch fashion, the evening continued on to feature book signing, friendly banter and a few more glasses of wine.
