At a special poetry reading last night in Grahamstown, South Africa, to raise awareness of Saturday’s impending World Rhino Day, some of the wonderful poems from For Rhino in a Shrinking World were given an airing – either by me or fellow poet Dan Wylie. Poems by Philip Neilsen (Australia), Susan Richardson (Wales), Elisabeth Gowans (South Africa), Pippa Little (England) and Madeleine Begun Kane (USA) all received warm approval from a receptive and discerning audience. And many people have already placed orders for the anthology in advance of publication – a good sign!
