Another week, another collection of extraordinary events, with Rosie Batty leading the way! Everyone who attended her event with Bryce Corbett at The Greek Club can attest to Rosie’s strength, humour and intelligence, and what a wonderful night it was. If you haven’t yet read A Mother’s Story, you simply must. You can read a great recap of the night from Provoke Magazine.

Rosie Waterland’s second event with us was just as good as the first (especially as the weather held!), and we had a shop full of happy fans, and it was a pleasure to hear Rosie’s story again.

Lots of great moments from Rosie's event!

We were also very proud to host the launch of local author Cass Moriarty’s book The Promise Seed, and it was a terrific night!

We also welcomed Michael Burge for a double book launch, and we were treated to a fascinating and thought-provoking conversation between Michael and Margo Kingston. In fact, you can listen to highlights of the event below:

The other big movers were books tied to two massive events coming up this week. The first, All Fall Down, is long-awaited conclusion to Matthew Condon’s epic True Crime series about Queensland’s political and police corruption. You can hear Matthew talk about the book tomorrow (Tuesday September 28) at The Old Museum. Get your tickets right here.


David Marr’s new Quarterly Essay on Bill Shorten has already ruffled feathers around the country, and you’ll get a chance to hear David in Person this Thursday October 1 at The Greek Club. Grab you tickets right here.


 The list is rounded out by huge new releases from Charlotte Wood, Tim Winton and David Lagercrantz (as well as a reappearance from Andy Weir’s The Martian, whose movie adaptation is out very soon!). Until next week… keep on reading!
