After all the tireless support she has lent Australian poetry over the last decade, it behoves me to call your attention to a rare reading by Johanna Featherstone (director of the seminal Red Room Company) of her own poetry during this year's Sydney Writer's Festival. Johanna, who I admit is a very dear friend, is attractively reticent about her own poetic efforts, considering how gifted she is at promoting the outpourings of others (precious little of which lives up to her enthusiasm). But I have read enough of her work to know she has a keen eye for the tender absurdities of our condition, and will no doubt be an engaging reader after so many years of practice at public speaking.
