Description

Our guest authors for Tuesday October 3rd are:

Kate Mildenhall - author of Skylarking, Australian fiction

Kate Mildenhall is a writer and teacher, who lives on the outskirts of Melbourne with her young family. She has taught in schools, at RMIT University and State Library Victoria, and volunteered with Teachers Across Borders in Cambodia. Her debut novel, SKYLARKING, was published by Black Inc. in 2016 and longlisted for the Indie Book Awards 2017. Kate is currently working on her second novel.

Inspired by a true story, Skylarking is a stunning debut novel about friendship, love and loss, one that questions what it is to remember and how tempting it can be to forget.


Pauline McKinnon - author of numerous books on stillness, meditiation, & anti-anxiety methods

In the eight years she was battling the crippling symptoms of anxiety, Pauline McKinnon searched endlessly for answers and in formation to no avail, leaving her feeling more alone and helpless. As a result, following her recovery, in 1983 she wrote her own story “In Stillness Conquer Fear” aiming to help and inform others in similar situations. Soon after the publication of her book, at the invitation of Dr Meares, she established the Stillness Meditation Centre and began to teach SMT to the public.

In Stillness Conquer Fear is now a ‘ classic’ with the 30th anniversary edition NOW released and is internationally recognised as a‘ first in raising public awareness of anxiety disorders.


Rowan Reid - author of Heartwood (The art and science of growing trees for conservation and profit)

Heartwood challenges the entrenched view that when it comes to forests, one is either a conservationist or a profiteer. Forest scientist Rowan Reid draws on over twenty years of experience and study to offer a third way: where growing trees for profit can have a positive environmental impact. He challenges the ideological poles that dominate the debate and offers a scientific view on how anyone with the necessary land and time can grow their own trees and profit from them while improving the soil, water and ecosystem.

Rowan also shares the personal story and family history that lead him to his revolutionary new approach. He shares his passion for native trees and provides the practical information that readers will need to understand and grow trees of their own.

We will provide some finger foods and beverages/tea/coffee on the night, as well as some giveaways supplied by publishers. The cost for each evening will be $15.00 all inclusive.

Please join us by booking a ticket here, or via camberwell@dymocks.com.au, or in store. Doors open 6.30pm for a 6.45pm start.

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!
