Pastries and Poetry

with Adrienne Jansen and special guests James Brown and Khadro Mohamed.

You’re invited to breakfast, with Adrienne Jansen from Landing Press and an ensemble of students from Whitireia Publishing. We’re cooking up a celebration of Adrienne Jansen and Landing Press’s poetry – as well as a delectable sneak peek into Adrienne’s upcoming collection, Roll & Break


Join us for coffee and conversation; for an inquiry into how poetry can enhance our everyday experiences.
