Last Thursday we celebrated the launch of Other Animals, an exciting debut poetry collection from Therese Lloyd, a graduate of the International Institute of Modern Letters and winner of the Schaeffer Fellowship to the prestigious Iowa Writer’s Workshop.
The event was held at Unity Books Wellington in conjunction with Victoria University Press, and Bernadette Hall, renowned NZ poet and Therese Lloyd’s high school classics teacher gave the book a warm introduction, describing Therese as someone who “puts her finger on an alternative strength and beauty in things.” The event was a great success, with plenty of friends, family, and lovers of good literature in attendance.
This selection of photos shows how the night went – swimmingly. Thanks to Victoria University Press and Therese Lloyd for having the launch here at Unity Books Wellington – we’re proud to support NZ publishing, poetry, and literature.
