Paper Table Novellas Launch:

Who: All Welcome! (but please don't forget your wallet)
For a long time now Bronwyn and I have been lamenting the lack of attention paid to the novella form in New Zealand. Now, as the publisher of Paper Table Novellas, she's finally decided to do something about it.
The first of our titles, Letters to a Psychiatrist, is the strange tale of a West Coast spiritual odyssey by distinguished eco-poet Leicester Kyle.
The second, The Annotated Tree Worship, is a story told in two novella-length portions, relating the sordid adventures of a disgraced, self-pitying Academic, caught in the grip of his own psychic crisis:
- Letters to a Psychiatrist, by Leicester Kyle
- The Annotated Tree Worship, by Jack Ross
[$NZ 40 the pair]

Leicester's book will be launched by award-winning poet Stu Bagby. My book will be launched by award-winning fiction writer Tracey Slaughter.
There will also be a range of artworks on sale by our brilliant designer, Lisa Baudry.
The wine will flow and a range of culinary treats will be provided. Please do come and spend the afternoon with us.
If you have any further questions about either the books or the imprint, check out our new Paper Table website.
