I went right through t’when No. 4 machine closed.
Like, th siren went, I seen th paper roll through th machine,
and that was it.
Th other bloke pulled th cutter up at his end and as I walked up
I cd see th last bit’f paper whippin through th machine.
I felt sad. I nearly cried.
Th whole day was weird.
It was like bein at someone’s funeral.
I was walkin out fr th last time and I chucked me clothes in th bin.
I thought, I won’t be needin these no more.
(from ‘Poke A Stick At’)

We very much hope you can make it. We have written this book to celebrate the town and honour the pulp community, and we would like a large audience of people with pulp mill connections.

For those not on the north-west coast, the book will also be launched in Hobart the following week. We will announce details shortly.
