Join us for the launch of local poet John Givins’ first book of poetry, Blowing Up Growing Up (2024, Askance Publishing), from which he’ll be reading selected poems.

John Givins was led to scribbling poetic thoughts while navigating the traumas of his wife’s cancer treatments. The collection has a mix of many subjects and observations: love and whimsy, neighbourhood perspectives, travel experiences and autobiographical memories of family and friends.

Copies of Blowing Up Growing Up will be available for purchase from the author.
