Description

UWA Publishing warmly invites you to the launch of The Sky Runs Right Through Us, the debut collection of poetry by Western Australian poet Reneé Pettitt-Schipp.

Professor Gillian Triggs, former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, says of the book: 'These beautiful Christmas Island poems capture both the despair of asylum seekers imprisoned by rock and sea and their ancient will to continue.'

The Sky Runs Right Through Us will be launched by Baden Offord, Professor of Cultural Studies and Human Rights and the Dr Haruhisa Handa Chair of Human Rights Education at Curtin University.

Please RSVP by Wednesday 14 February for catering purposes.
