Blackout cancels FSP Featured Poets @ Halifax Cafe in September: Stephen Brock & Nathan Curnow

In case you hadn’t noticed, the massive storm-induced power blackout that hit SA forced the cancellation of this session. We’ll see what we can do to re-run it at some stage. Tough for the poets, the cafe and the punters, but that’s the weather for you…




This month’s FSP Featured Poets @ Halifax Cafe presents Adelaide’s own Stephen Brock and, from Ballarat, Nathan Curnow.

Wednesday, 28th September, 2016

Halifax Cafe, 187 Halifax Street, Adelaide, 6:00 – 7:30 pm.
