Description

Unity Books Wellington, Mary Macpherson and The Cuba Press warmly invite you to celebrate the launch of 'Social Media' by Mary Macpherson with readings by The Meow Gurrrls. All welcome.

ABOUT THE BOOK

For a while, living a digital life was like being
a successful swan. Dignified gliding over the lake
like you understood the way the world worked,
the world being hard bright stones at the bottom
of the lake and you on the surface, held up.

Is our identity more of a composite than we realise?

We often think of ourselves as formed from our core values or our DNA, but in Social Media, Mary Macpherson explores identity as a creation of the interactions we have with others: friends, family and the wider world, and the evolving role technology now plays in this. A playful and provocative debut poetry collection that drills into our social and media selves using elements from short stories, art projects and films.
