Todd will be presenting on his new book, 'Thirty Thousand Bottles of Wine and a Pig Called Helga', which recounts the time he threw caution to the wind and bought 100 acres in the renowned Hunter Valley wine region, intent on living a golden bucolic life and building a fabulous B&B, where he could offer the joys of country life to heart-weary souls. It doesn't all go as planned. Todd Alexander has been writing for over twenty years. His work has been published in magazines and period­icals and his first novel, Pictures of Us, was published in 2006, and Tom Houghton was published in 2015.

Join best-selling crime author Candice Fox as she returns to Crimson Lake for her latest novel, Gone by Midnight. Doors open 6.30pm, talk starts at 7pm. Bookings essential.

Crimson Lake is where bad people come to disappear – and where eight-year-old boys vanish into thin air…On the fifth floor of the White Caps Hotel, four young friends are left alone while their parents dine downstairs. But when Sara Farrow checks on the children at midnight, her son is missing. The boys swear they stayed in their room, and CCTV confirms Richie has not left the building. Despite a thorough search, no trace of the child is found. Distrustful of the police, Sara turns to Crimson Lake's unlikeliest private investigators: disgraced cop Ted Conkaffey and convicted killer Amanda Pharrell. For Ted, the case couldn’t have come at a worse time. Two years ago a false accusation robbed him of his career, his reputation and most importantly his family. But now Lillian, the daughter he barely knows, is coming to stay in his ramshackle cottage by the lake. Ted must dredge up the area's worst characters to find a missing boy. And the kind of danger he uncovers could well put his own child in deadly peril.

Bankstown born and bred, Candice currently lives in Sydney. Candice Fox will be signing books after her talk. Buy a book at the event, or bring your own copy along to be signed!

When a lethal bushfire tore through Myrtle, nestled in Victoria's breathtaking Otway Ranges, the town's buildings - and the lives of its residents - were left as smouldering ash. For three women in particular, the fire fractured their lives and their relationships. Eighteen months later, with the flurry of national attention long past, Myrtle stands restored, shiny and new. But is the outside polish just a veneer? Community stalwart Julie thinks tourism could bring back some financial stability to their little corner of the world and soon prods Claire, Bec and Sophie into joining her group. But the scar tissue of trauma runs deep, and as each woman exposes her secrets and faces the damage that day wrought, a shocking truth will emerge that will shake the town to its newly rebuilt foundations...

With her sharp eye for human foibles, bestselling author Fiona Lowe writes an evocative tale of everyday people fighting for themselves, their families and their town - as only this distinctively Australian storyteller can.

In Walking Free, Munjed Al Muderis described his experience as a refugee fleeing Saddam Hussein's Iraq and his early work as a pioneering orthopaedic surgeon at the cutting edge of world medicine. In his new book, Going Back, Munjed shares the extraordinary journey that his life-changing new surgical technique has taken him on. Through osseointegration, he implants titanium rods into the human skeleton and attaches robotic limbs, allowing patients permanent mobility.

Munjed has performed this operation on hundreds of Australian civilians. But nothing has been as extraordinary as his return to Iraq after eighteen years to operate on amputees wounded in the horrific war against ISIS. These stories are told from the unique perspective of a refugee returning to the place of his birth as a celebrated international surgeon.

In their tiny pale green cottage under the trees, Mallory Cook and her five-year-old son, Harry, are a little family unit who weather the storms of life together. Money is tight after Harry's father, Duncan, abandoned them to expand his business in New York. So when Duncan fails to return Harry after a visit, Mallory boards a plane to bring her son home any way she can. During the journey, a chance encounter with three retirees on the run from their care home leads Mallory on an unlikely group road trip across the United States. Zadie, Ernie and Jock each have their own reasons for making the journey and along the way the four of them will learn the lengths they will travel to save each other – and themselves.

In the wake of loss and devastation, Alex must cast aside her grief to seek aid from those who banished the Meyarins long ago. But the proud Tia Aurans care little for the woes of mortals and demand that Alex—and her friends—undergo the Gates of Testing to prove their world is worth saving. With an ancient prophecy looming, Alex must confront the secrets of her past if she is to survive long enough to see the future. For if she returns to Medora without the Tia Aurans by her side, all hope will be lost. In this explosive conclusion to The Medoran Chronicles, the fate of Medora hangs in the balance as Alex readies herself to face Aven one final time. Who will survive, and who will fall?

Have you ever had a voice in your head that asks you “Where the hell is my money going?” Or what about this little gem that pops up every so often when you catch up with the girls: “How can she afford that?!”

Editor of Money Magazine, Effie Zahos, has and her new book – A Real Girl’s Guide to Money: From Converse to Louboutins is for every woman out there who unashamedly has that voice in her head or a group of friends who want answers! Effie's greatest fear has always been retiring in a polyester outfit and drinking cask wine because she hasn’t saved enough to live the lifestyle she's accustomed to. Jokes aside, the lack of money women have in retirement is a big issue. This is why Effie has written the book with women in mind but the solutions apply just as equally to men.

Please come along for our International Women's Day event for the launch of A Real Girl's Guide to Money. Joining Effie are her colleagues, Fiona Connolly (Woman's Day Editor in Chief) and Kristie Lau (Woman's Day Features & Lifestyle Editor). They'll be discussing the different stages in a woman's life where being financially savvy is important. Your first job, getting married, starting a family and planning for the golden years. Bring your questions because there'll be a Q&A at the conclusion of the panel discussion and Effie will be happy to sign copies of her book for you.

Please RSVP to eventscoordinator@dymocks.com.au if you'd like to attend.
We look forward to seeing you there!
