2015: Heart Starter: poems and photos

On Sunday 04 July 2015 (US American Independence Day!) my twenty-fourth book of poems was launched at the Surry Hills Community Centre, part of Surry Hills Public Library (and where would we be without librarians?). A great time was had by all. Here are some photos from the launch, by me and by Trish Davies.
(And see the extensive Notes to the poems here: http://johntranter.net/?page_id=9563)
