Pete Green presents Hemisphere
Online (via Zoom)
Thursday 2 December | 7.30pm | Free

Join us for the online launch of Pete Green’s Hemisphere: a short book, a long poem, an impossible journey.

Hemisphere is the story of an impossible journey, told in verse, which circumnavigates the politics of interaction between people, places and poetry. On a chaotic round trip from the Hebrides across the north Atlantic, Canada, Alaska and Siberia, the poem invites reflection on government and nationality, geography, language and ‘post-truth’, fertility, decay, and imagination.

This online launch of the book comprises an introduction by editor Brian Lewis, readings and commentary by Pete Green, and an audience Q&A to close. We will also be joined by artist Abi Goodman (whose artwork features in Hemisphere).

The event is free to attend. To join, please click here to register through Eventbrite (Zoom meeting ID / passcode details will be emailed to you the day before the event).

You can read the first section of Hemisphere here, and find further details of the book here. Click here to read ‘The confessions of a virtual tourist’, a short essay by Pete Green that reflects on the origins and development of Hemisphere.
