The Hobart Book Shop is delighted to be hosting the launch, by Irene McGuire, of Lyn Reeves’ long-awaited haiku collection, Field of Stars.
'From the very first haiku Field of Stars is a celebration of what the haiku master Masaoka Shiki described in the first principle of haiku as Shasei or “sketching from life.” Lyn Reeves has succeeded in finding diamonds with her finely observed and beautifully sketched moments. In a time of Global Warming and dire predictions, Reeves shows us that we can all remember what is at stake with her observations of nature and writing from the heart and a place of wonder. This is a collection to be kept close and cherished for the many celebrations of what it is to be a part of nature. I commend this to the reader and may you walk gently with Lyn in a Field of Stars.'Ron C. Moss, former Secretary, Australian Haiku Society, and author of The Bone Carver and Bushfire Moon.
Lyn Reeves is the former haiku editor of the literary journal Famous Reporter and current editor for the online journal Echidna Tracks: Australian Haiku. She also serves as the Vice-President of The Australian Haiku Society. Lyn’s poetry, stories and haiku have been widely published, her collection Designs on the Body winning the coveted IP Picks Poetry Award in 2010. Field of Stars brings together many of the haiku that have appeared in journals since the release of her first haiku collection, Walking the Tideline, in 2001 and which is now available as a free download from The Haiku Foundation Digital Library. Lyn lives in Hobart, where she co-convenes the haiku group, Watersmeet.
This is a free event and all are welcome. No RSVP or registration is required.
