Les Murray was one of Australia’s best loved poets. He wrote with grace and fireworks about country life, and, had a gift for exquisite language that moved through every register. After he passed away in April 2019, West Australian Poets Inc and the Centre for Stories thought it would be appropriate to get together and remember him. Join us for an evening of reflection, poems and poetics with Dennis Haskell, Lucy Dougan, Gary de Piazzi, Rose van Son, and Robert Wood. It will be a chance to hear the work of Les Murray, one of the most awarded and celebrated poets of his time, who was the winner of the Grace Leven Prize, the TS Eliot Prize and the Queen’s Gold Medal, amongst many other awards.
