Firechief is located behind Dan Murphy's, or off Camberwell Road. You may still use The Well Car park if you wish, it is a short walking distance from there.
*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 May 2nd are:
Kirsty Manning - Australian fiction
Kirsty Manning grew up in northern New South Wales. She has degrees in literature and communications and worked as an editor and publishing manager in book publishing for over a decade. A country girl with wanderlust, her travels and studies have taken her through most of Europe, the east and west coasts of the United States and pockets of Asia. Kirsty's journalism and photography specialising in lifestyle and travel regularly appear in magazines, newspapers and online. In 2007, Kirsty and her husband, with two toddlers and a baby in tow, built a house in an old chestnut grove in the Macedon Ranges. Together, they planted an orchard and veggie patch, created large herbal 'walks' brimming with sage and rosemary, wove borders from chestnut branches and constructed far too many stone walls by hand. Kirsty loves cooking with her kids and has several large heirloom copper pots that do not fit anywhere easily, but are perfect for making (and occasionally burning) jams, chutneys and soups. With husband Alex Wilcox, Kirsty is a partner in the award-winning Melbourne wine bar Bellota, and the Prince Wine Store in Sydney and Melbourne.
Shivaun Plozza - Young adult fiction
Shivaun Plozza is the author of Frankie, a darkly funny novel about searching for the truth, finding yourself and falling in love. Set in Collingwood, Frankie explores the disappearance of a young graffiti artist and the angry, smart-mouthed girl willing to defy her friends, family and the law to find him. Shivaun's short fiction, flash fiction, essays and poetry have appeared in anthologies and journals including Where the Shoreline Used to Be, Above Water, Text, Vivid and The Victorian Writer. When she's not writing, Shivaun works as an editor and manuscript assessor. She is an ex-English and philosophy teacher and has two masters degrees, one in creative writing and one in publishing. Frankie is her first novel.

Dymocks Camberwell celebrated 2012 The National Year of Reading with the inauguration of our very own First Tuesday Book Club, each month.
We start 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!
