Percy Shozi invites you to hear him read live at the Australian launch of his second poetry book, Wings of an Eagle, which he says will appeal to poetry lovers, young adults and Christian readers.
Wings of An Eagle is a collection of poems that cover topics such as following your dreams, finding faith, freedom and identity. Each chapter has a space for personal reflection so you can consider how these topics relate to your own life.
The event is free but copies of his book will be for sale at the event for $25.
A night for the poetic sweepings of the inner north to degenerate into sleaze, vitriol, and confusion. And rise into revelation, liberating confession and poetic wisps of the sublime. A feast of clashing waters. All in a cozy artsy pup. No features, no list, no limits. Just put your hand up and come on up. Is your piece not really ready? It is for this gig.
