Publicity material for this event says:

Please join us to celebrate the launch of Laura Elliott's debut collection, 'lemon, egg, bread'. With readings from Laura Elliott, Jessa Mockridge, Rebecca Tamás and Emilia Weber.

'lemon, egg, bread' is a striking debut; a series of imagistic poems which read as an attempt to speed-write the still life image. Drawn out of a process of meditation on and intervention within various still life compositions, including works by Laura Letinsky, the collection explores practices of re-articulation.

Laura Letinsky has said of the collection: 'Elliott’s beautiful and delicate words swerve amidst and between the complications and joys of the domestic. I was struck and amazed by how these poems led me into, around, and through the nuances of the everyday in all their sensorial and emotional glory, along with its opposite. This is important work.'
