Harry Ricketts – poet, academic, editor and reviewer
What (or who) are you most looking forward to at WORD Christchurch?
Seeing and listening to other writers and old friends; engaging with audiences.
What do you think about libraries?
I’m a “library cormorant”. I see libraries as treasure houses to plunge into.
Share a surprising fact about yourself.
I have double-jointed thumbs. Useless, but surprising.
