Event description

Description

On the first Friday night of each month, Brunswick Bound Upstairs hosts a night of local author readings.

It's your chance to discover a new author and for authors to discover new audiences.

In July, the event will feature readings by Leah Kaminsky (The Hollow Bones), Elizabeth Kuiper (Little Stones) and Anna Snoekstra (The Spite Game).

Each author will read from their work and there will be a short Q&A afterwards.

Light refreshments will be served at the event.

Leah Kaminsky is a physician and award-winning writer. Her debut novel, The Waiting Room, won the prestigious Voss Literary Prize. She conceived and edited Writer MD, a collection of prominent physician-writers, which starred on Booklist and is co-author of Cracking the Code, with the Damiani family. She holds an MFA in fiction from Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Elizabeth Kuiper grew up in Zimbabwe before immigrating to Perth with her mother. In 2016 she graduated from University of Melbourne with a degree in politics and philosophy. An early extract of Little Stones was shorlisted for the Richell Prize, received the Express Media prize for best work of fiction, and was published in Award Winning Australian Writing. Elizabeth is currently studying Law at University of Melbourne.

Anna Snoekstra writes novels, teaches storytelling at RMIT University and Co-ordinates the Write Club at 100 Story Building. Her non-fiction has appeared in The Guardian, Filmme Fatales and she is a regular contributor to Lindsay. Her first novel Only Daughter was released in 2016, and is currently in the works to be turned into a feature film with Universal Pictures. Her second, the acclaimed Little Secrets, was released in 2017. 2018 was a bumper year for Anna, she released her first novel for Young Adults, Mercy Point, and the twisty and suspenseful The Spite Game.
