Isobar at Bar Iznt


Thanks a lot to everybody, readers and audience, who came to Bar Iznt in Kobe on Sunday 4th June for the Isobar reading! Here are a couple of pictures, one of Peter Robinson launching Approach to Distance: Selected Poems from Japan, with Mayako Murai reading Miki Iwata‘s Japanese translations, and the other of Yoko Danno, Jessica Goodfellow and Osaka poet Trane DeVore reading their series of linked quatrains. Yoko also read from her Glass Lyre Press book Aquamarine and her Isobar book Woman in a Blue Robe, while Jessica read from The Insomniac’s Weather Report and presented some extracts from her new book, Whiteout, forthcoming from the University of Alaska Press in July 2017.
