Hard to believe we’re heading towards the end of the year, but here we are. There are some brilliant releases out in the coming weeks, including Trent Dalton’s second novel and the latest Jane Harper. Trent will be our guest at the October Brisbane Literary Mafia and November will feature Anita Heiss. As always, these half hour zoom cast events will include my top five reading recommendations by Aussie authors for the month. Some great conversations coming up too – I’ll be chatting to the very amusing Richard Glover about his dog Clancy, discussing Monique Mulligan’s debut fiction novel, and I’m so pleased to be launching the Lighthouse anthology with stories by a range of emerging authors. All details in the Events section. Congratulations to everyone involved with the Queensland Literary Awards which saw a whole host of emerging and established writers taking home prizes!
