Baltimore gets New Zealand poetry

I’ve blogged before about the ultra cool poetry posters planted round Christchurch and other places by the wonderful Phantom Billstickers people.

Now they’ve hit Baltimore, Maryland, USA with Aotearoa’s finest. I love the idea that the home of ‘best tv series ever’ The Wire is playing host to the poetry of Janet Frame, Jay Clarkson, Sandra Bell, last year’s Laureate Michele Leggott and more.

Jim Wilson’s post on the Baltimore Poster Run is a gem, read it and feel the power of ‘Charm City’.

    Cool. But why doesn’t your library have The Wire on dvd?

    Hi Erin,

    I’ll check with our team of buyers. There’s a form to fill out on the web site which is handy if you want to recommend the library buys something.
