      First Tuesday Book Club September 2019 - with 4 Special Guest Authors!

      Please note new location, Barolo Trattoria Camberwell. We apologise for the inconvenience, the function room is upstairs & there is no lift. *Please note that there is NO SET BOOK for our Book Club! You may come & just listen, or talk about whatever you have recently been reading - no pressure, just books!* Our guest authors for Tuesday September 3rd are: Meaghan Wilson Anastasios - historical fiction & non-fiction Meaghan Wilson Anastasios spent her formative years in Melbourne before travelling and working as an archaeologist in the Mediterranean and Middle East. She holds a PhD in art history and cultural economics, has been a lecturer at the University of Melbourne and was a fine art auctioneer. Meaghan now uses her expertise to write and research for film and TV. She lives in inner-city Melbourne with her husband and their two children. Alex Landragin - speculative fiction novel, Crossings Alex Landragin is a French-Armenian-Australian writer. Born in France into a family of champagne-makers, he migrated to western Victoria as a child. Now a freelance copywriter, he is a former Lonely Planet author of guides to Australia, Europe and Africa, and has previously been online content manager for the Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas. He holds a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Melbourne and is a past recipient of an Australia Council Emerging Writer's Grant. Now residing in Melbourne, he has also lived in Washington DC, Paris, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Alice Springs and Marseille. Anne Crawford - non-fiction, Surviving Healthcare in Australia Anne is a passionate Australian who has dedicated her career to working in the health care system with an interest in mental health, aged care and community health services. She is the Principal Consultant at Exploring Healthcare and a well-respected health professional. Anne has broad experience as a patient, caregiver and healthcare professional. During the years, Anne has been caring for her grandmother in her final years and daughter with a developmental disorder, Anne saw first-hand the disparities in accessing healthcare services. She understands that people with disabilities, as well as those with a higher prevalence of health problems than the general population, are more likely to experience inequalities in accessing health care and generally die from preventable causes. So, it became her passion and life’s work to improve healthcare access in Australia and to write her first published work, Surviving Healthcare in Australia - Get the Support You Need. In the book she advocates, it is time Australia’s healthcare system provides patients with the support they need, not just to recover from an illness but to secure the best possible outcome physically, mentally, emotionally and personally. Bernadette Somers - non-fiction, Yolk: A guide to connection in this life and beyond Bernadette Somers is an Intuitive Mentor, physiotherapist, Pilates instructor, and life coach. She believes that even when our loved ones pass on they are still in our lives, and in this book she shares her experiences that show people never truly leave us. Bernadette is also a teacher of mindful meditation, and her focus on the mind–body connection helps her clients to live a more balanced life. ________________________________________ We will provide some finger foods and beverages/tea/coffee on the night, as well as some giveaways supplied by publishers. The cost for each evening will be $15.00 all inclusive. Please join us by booking a ticket here. Doors open 6.30pm for a 6.45pm start. Dymocks Camberwell celebrated 2012 The National Year of Reading with the inauguration of our very own First Tuesday Book Club, each month. After our guest authors speak, we finish the evening by talking about our favourite novels, both new & older ones. We will ask participants to comment about books they have read or are reading, just like a normal book club. We won’t be setting a monthly book, as we want to hear about as many books as possible, including old favourites. You may just want to listen at times and hear about other people’s experiences with their books. It is totally up to you!
