Literary Lunch at Cakes and Ale Bistro with award winning author Melanie Cheng



Antipodes Bookshop & Gallery and Cakes and Ale Bistro are pleased to bring you the fifth Literary Lunch in our series for 2017.


Join us to celebrate the release of Australia Day a collection of stories by debut author Melanie Cheng. The people Melanie writes about are young, old, rich, poor, married, widowed, Chinese, Lebanese, Christian, Muslim. What they have in common—no matter where they come from—is the desire we all share to feel that we belong. The stories explore universal themes of love, loss, family and identity.

Melanie is an important new voice offering a fresh perspective on contemporary Australia. In addition to being an author, Melanie works as a general practitioner. Of Chinese - Australian heritage

she was born in Adelaide, grew up in Hong Kong and now lives in Melbourne. In 2016 she won the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript.

Australia Day is her first book.


Enjoy a beautiful 3 course lunch including wine and hear Melanie in conversation with radio broadcaster Mark Stuart.
