A Book Launch and a Writing Workshop coming up for #Writers and Book Lovers #IPW



A Book Launch Worth Going To.

2012 MONDAYS AT SEVEN AT ST. CLEMENTS



FEBRUARY 6
LIVING WITH HAIKU

Pieter Scholtz and Andrew Verster have joined forces
to publish a book of poetry and drawings.
Haiga is an art form where painting is combined with haiku.
The collection includes 25 haiku by Pieter Scholtz
and 25 drawings by Andrew Verster.

‘The drawings were not created to illustrate the haiku.
I selected the drawings after considering many wonderful drawings
that Andrew made available to me. Some of the drawings lend a new perspective
to the haiku, while others reinforce the thoughts or emotions contained in them.
They provide a visual counterpoint to the poems.’
                                                                                    Pieter Scholtz

‘The drawings are not illustrations of the haiku.
They live alongside them and have their own life.
It is for the reader to make connections – or not.’
                                                                                    Andrew Verster

                                                            ***

Andy Dillon (guitar) and Tiffany (vocals) will make music.
Pieter Scholtz and Andrew Verster will discuss the haiga (haiku + drawings).
They will both be available thereafter to answer questions and sign copies.


St Clements Coffee Shop, Musgrave Road, Monday 6 Feb at 7pm.
