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 September 5th are:
James Phelan in conversation with Andy Martin, about Andy's book Reacher Said Nothing
Ever wondered what it takes to be a #1 bestselling author? According to Forbes, Lee Child is the world’s strongest brand in publishing. In Australia he is a #1 bestselling novelist, and his Jack Reacher books are the most borrowed titles in our libraries.
Join Dr Andy Martin, lecturer at Cambridge, and thriller writer James Phelan, as they discuss the genius of Lee Child, the enduring appeal of Jack Reacher, and give a glimpse into the thriller writing process.
Andy Martin is author of the excellent “how to” book, Reacher Said Nothing: Lee Child and the Making of Make Me (Random House). Lee Child started writing his 20th Jack Reacher novel, Make Me, at 2.26 pm on September 1, 2014. He finished it at 12.24 on April 10, 2015. From the first word (‘Moving’) through to the last (‘needle’), Andy Martin sat in his office in Manhattan, and shadowed the author around America and Europe, and watched him write it.

Melissa Ashley is a writer, poet, birder and academic who tutors in poetry and creative writing at the University of Queensland.

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!
