Bronwyn Eather – I am Magpie Book Launch
Poetry Sydney and Bronwyn Eather would like to invite you to join the digital event launch of I am magpie.
The orated collection reimagines the first three years of colonisation through the eyes of a young widow Eliza Collins née Swift, who is a student of the enlightenment and a mystical dreamer.
The story draws on Bronwyn’s love of songwriting and poetry to construct stanzas of dreams, imaginings and endeavour. Written with three major threads using first-person narration and the Yura (Eora) language, we listen and watch as Eliza takes centre stage. We become her audience.
“I love the taste of words and how they roll and flow from mind to mouth into the world.”
Poetry performance by Bronwyn Eather, and an in-conversation with Angela Stretch, Creative Director, Poetry Sydney
Poetry Sydney partners with Sydney Underground Streaming Sessions (SUSS) to present the first live digital event.
