Join trans-Tasman publisher Dr David Reiter as he launches new work by Tim Jones and Keith Westwater. Tim will read from his new collection, "Men Briefly Explained", and Keith from his prize-winning debut collection, "Tongues of Ash".

Tim Jones' (winner of the NZSA Janet Frame Memorial Award for Literature in 2010) new collection of poetry is Men Briefly Explained.

Men Briefly Explained explores all aspects of contemporary manhood, the humorous and not so humorous, where men are in relation to women and to society in general.

Thought-provoking, impertinent, irreverent, witty, startling, this collection will have you mesmerised from start to finish.

Tongues of Ash is Keith Westwater's debut collection of poetry. It received Brisbane-based trans-Tasman publisher Interactive Publications' 2011 IP Picks Best First Book prize.

Keith Westwater's poetry arises from his appreciation and love of the New Zealand landscape. Well-travelled throughout the land, the poet evokes memories as he revisits places invested with emotion, history and spirituality.
