Book Launch: New Transgender Blockbusters


Palmerston North City Library, Level 2 | Wed 4 March, 2020

Urgent, witty and unnervingly beautiful, Oscar Upperton’s first collection, New Transgender Blockbusters, takes familiar language and makes it uncanny.

Join us on Wednesday the 4th of March in celebrating the launch of this collection. Featuring readings by local poets.

Oscar Upperton was born in Christchurch in 1991, and grew up in Whangārei and Palmerston North. He now lives in Wellington. In 2019 he was awarded the Creative New Zealand Louis Johnson New Writer’s Bursary.
