Our bestselling book from last week, in cake form! (photo courtesy Mary-Rose MacColl)

Wow, what a week! Not that we should be surprised any more, but we had so many great events we can hardly keep up. Stephen Knight, Graeme Base, a wonderful Graphic Novel panel with Isobelle Carmody, Kathleen Jennings, Jackie Ryan and Marianne de Pierres, the launch of the final Sleepers Almanac and if that wasn’t enough, Magda Szubanski dropped in on Friday arvo to sign some copies of her amazing new biography.


If you missed out on the fun last week, we’re very happy to tell you this week is just as good! Here’s what’s going down:

Monday: You reading this blog post.

Tuesday: Phil Brown launches Ross Fitzgerald and Ian McFadyen’s Going Out Backwards

Wednesday: The launch of Drew Grozier’s Tedde and the Serial Killer

Thursday: A Literary Salon featuring Charlotte Wood, author of the critically-acclaimed new novel The Natural Way of Things, in-conversation with Kristina Olsson.

Friday: A DOUBLE-HEADER! In-store we’ll be launching Leisa Stathis’ Becoming A Mother and up at Wandering Cooks, we’re hosting Alex Elliott-Howery and James Grant as they celebrate their new cookbook Cornersmith (along wine, cheese and a live pickling demonstration!).

Saturday: Coffee

Sunday: Sleep

Mmmm.... pickles

Mmmm…. pickles

Hopefully we’ll see you at one of next week’s great events!
