Event description

Description

We are very excited to have local author Alicia Tuckerman joining us at our next club! Alicia is the author of If I Tell You and is a driving force for young LGBT voices within Australia.

We will have a in-conversation with Alicia, followed by a book signing. Copies of Alicia's book will be available to purchase on the night. If you have any questions you would like to ask Alicia about her books or writing experiences, please feel free to bring them with you on the night.

Our book of the month for discussion after the author event is The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. There will be a quiz with prizes on this book so get reading!

As usual we'll be talking about all our favourite books and book news, so if you haven't read the book, you are still more than welcome to attend.

Join us for cups of T2 tea, baked goodies, giveways and chats about books in a bookstore after hours. We welcome YA lovers of all ages.

ABOUT ALICIA TUCKERMAN

Raised in rural NSW before she left home at the age of sixteen, she accepted a position to study at the Hunter School of Performing Arts.

Described as having an overactive imagination as a child, she recalls writing stories her entire life. Alicia attributes surviving her teenage years to the comfort, release and escape writing offered and she hopes to inspire the next generation of readers and writers to embrace their true passions.

Alicia was inspired to write If I Tell You after finding a lack of YA novels featuring two central lesbian characters. She draws on her life experiences to explore the joys, triumphs and cruelties of modern day adolescence and considers there is no fantasy world she could create that is more terrifyingly beautiful than the one we’re expected to live in.

Alicia is a Law Clerk and now lives in the Swan Valley region of Perth with her wife and two children, where she does most of her writing in the small hours before the kids wake up, or on her daily commute to the office!

Make sure you join our Dymocks Joondalup YA Book Club Facebook group so we can keep you in the loop with all our updates.

Hope to see you all again.

Love the team at Dymocks Joondalup. xx
