‘Teens—maybe more than ever—need to be included in our cultural programming in thoughtful, and challenging ways … they are integral to continuing the culture of writer’s festivals in this country’—Youth literature advocate Danielle Binks asks whether or not writer’s festivals are catering to the next generation.
It is with great excitment that the committee of the Queenscliffe Literary Festival, heading into it’s 5th year in 2019, has appointed Jane Finemore to be the first contracted Festival Programmer for 2019.
From a strong list of applicants, Jane stood out. Her enthusiasm and knowledge will be a wonderful asset to the festival moving forward.
Her breadth of experience across many facets of the book industry, and her realtionship with authors, and festival experience makes her an ideal choice.
Imagine John Yoko
by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, with contributions from the people who were there
9 October 2018 | $65.00 | Published by Thames & Hudson
Personally compiled and curated by Yoko Ono, Imagine John Yoko is the definitive inside story—told in revelatory detail—of the making of the legendary album and all that surrounded it: the locations, the creative team, the artworks and the films, in the words of John & Yoko and the people who were there.
Imagine tells the story of John & Yoko’s life, work and relationship during this intensely creative period. It transports readers to home and working environments through artfully compiled narrative film stills, Yoko’s closely guarded archive photos and artefacts, and stitched-together panoramas taken from outtake film footage that recreate the interiors in evocative detail.
Each chapter and song is introduced with text by John & Yoko compiled from published and unpublished sources and complemented by comments from Yoko today. Fresh insights are provided by musicians, engineers and staff who took part, many of whom feature on the inner sleeve’s enigmatic picture wheel, in which the identities are finally revealed. All the minutiae is examined: the locations, the key players, the music and lyrics, the production techniques and the artworks—including the creative process behind the double exposure polaroids used on the album cover.
