Big Breakfast Bookclub Ellen Van Neerven says
Join us for out August Big Breakfast Bookclub, where the Avid Cafe will be open for brekky, and Krissy Kneen will be in-conversation with poet and novelist Ellen van Neerven to discuss her new poetry colleciton 'Comfort Food' (University of Queensland Press).

This bookclub is 9.30am for a 10.00am start.

Following on from the success of her award-winning fiction debut, 'Heat and Light', Ellen van Neerven announces herself as a talented poet with this intoxicating collection. Moving between places and cultures, 'Comfort Food' explores identity, sovereignty and the restless quest for love.

The poems offers a close inward focus and an exquisite sensitivity which bridge van Neerven's Indigenous and non-Indigenous heritage, and the melding of cultural experiences offers access to a unique and vibrant bicultural experience. The textures and sensuality of the poems' imagery create a portrait of a young woman's life and her exploration of body and mind. A stunning poetry debut from an immensely talented author.
