Gwen Harwood, who died in 1995, was born on 8 June 1920, in Brisbane, of course, which she loved dearly. Harwood seems increasingly to have been one of the finest poets Australia has ever produced. She was much loved; anyone who knew her relished her wit, her directness, her inextinguishable spirit. To mark the centenary of her birth, ABR asked a number of her colleagues and admirers to record some of her poems. Happily, there are hundreds of them to explore.
Readers include Stephanie Trigg, Ann-Marie Priest, Chris Wallace-Crabbe, Larry Sitsky, Sarah Holland-Batt, Robyn Archer, and more.
