Art Nahill’s fourth book of poetry has just been published!
Lessons From The Drought is the poet’s most personal collection to date, many of the poems having their genesis in the isolation, loneliness, and self-doubt of the pandemic but retaining the universality and accessibility of his previous work.
It’s taken some time and a whole lot of effort but we are poised to contribute the profits from the sale of Waiatarua: Reflections from an urban wetland back to the reserve in the form of beautiful and engaging educational signage (with botanical drawings by local Emma Csite and sign design by another local, Maia Szecket!). The signs will be of birds and plants that can be seen in the reserve with the hope that we will become more aware of what is around us.
A moving book of new poems and photographs inspired by the Waiatarua Wetland Reserve in Auckland, New Zealand. The poems included in this collection celebrate some of the bird and plan life within the reserve but are also an homage to the creative inspiration of green open spaces everywhere. The photographs help place the reader within the reserve and serve to amplify the impact of the writing. And all the proceeds after cost will be donated back to the reserve.
