Jeremy Roberts Book Launch

The Dark Cracks of Kemang - The Bajaj Boys in Indonesia

Date: Dec 2 – Dec 2Space: Workshop

Creative Arts Napier are proud to be hosting the launch & book signing of local poet and writer Jeremy Roberts’ newly published book! 

In 2013, poet Jeremy Roberts did something few of us have the guts to do: he looked at his Auckland life, decided he’d supported his musician daughter on enough gigs, and dared himself to squeeze in some adventure in the third quarter of his life.  Age 53, Roberts agreed to spend a year teaching at NZ International School in Jakarta, a city of 10 million in a nation of 271 million.  The move was pretty ballsy. In fact, The Dark Cracks of Kemang, published September 2022 (10 years after his adventure began) is entirely a meditation about finding the beautiful exhilaration of daring oneself to live more adventurously.

Get your hands on a copy now at Wardini Books in Hastings Street, Napier for just $33!

Celebrate with us at CAN on Friday, 2nd December 5-7pm, the launch of an extraordinary book lived and written by Jeremy Roberts.

All welcome.  Drink & nibbles provided
