Book Launch: Lifting Light by Christine Broe
Thursday 17 September
About the book
This new collection has been a long time in gestation. It holds the artwork and poetry created during the last twelve years. The bog sculpture on the front cover, created especially for this publication, is an example of her work in this unusual medium. The collection contains many poems inspired by this work, poems twinned with paintings and poems from her everyday life inspired by friendships and family. Three of the poems from the collection are previewed on YouTube.
