Description

Meet Mark Brandi, author of The Rip.

Doors open 6.30pm, talk starts 7pm.

Mark Brandi's bestselling novel, Wimmera, won the coveted British Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger, and was named Best Debut at the 2018 Australian Indie Book Awards. It was also shortlisted for the Australian Book Industry Awards Literary Fiction Book of the Year, and the Matt Richell Award for New Writer of the Year. His second novel, The Rip, is to be published by Hachette Australia in March 2019. It is already receiving critical acclaim.

Mark's shorter work has appeared in The Guardian, The Age, The Big Issue, and in journals both here and overseas. His writing is also sometimes heard on ABC Radio National.

Mark graduated with a criminal justice degree and worked extensively in the justice system, before changing direction and deciding to write. Originally from Italy, he grew up in rural Victoria. Mark now lives in Melbourne and is already working on his next work of fiction.

Mark Brandi will sign books after his talk. Buy a book at the event, or bring your own copy along to be signed.

This event is presented in partnership with Hachette Australia and Dymocks North Lakes.
