Julia Prendergast’s debut novel, The Earth Does Not Get Fat, is a powerful story of family trauma set in the shadows of Blairgowrie, a beach village near Melbourne.

When: 6pm, March 7th, 2018
Where: Frankston Library (60 Playne St, Frankston VIC 3199)

Teenager Chelsea has her hands full caring for her grandfather, who has dementia and her mother, Annie, who is sinking further into depression. Her father is long gone, and barely known ghosts make for strange company. Chelsea’s questions – about her mother, their family history, and the place from which they’ve come – demand to be answered after a strange parcel arrives in the mail.

This is a free event, but bookings are essential via the Frankston Library website, here or contact 03 9784 1020


Richard Cornish is an award-winning food writer whose love of the land led him to explore the issues around food: where it comes from, how it gets to us, and why some foods taste better than others.

Join him for an enlightening evening as he discusses his latest book, 'Brain Food: A Culinary Cornucopia of Questions'.

When: 6.30pm Thursday the 22nd of March 2018

Where: Realm Library, Town Square Eastland (171-175 Maroondah Hwy, Ringwood VIC 3134)

Roland is one of Australia's best-known authors. He has written 32 books, many of them going on to become bestsellers, including six books of military history. As part of his research for 'Monash & Chauvel', Perry travelled to every country mentioned in the book, and poured through troves of archival material to bring to life the fascinating story of Australia’s two greatest generals. He is a fabulous and engaging public speaker.

This is a free event, but bookings are essential via the Realm Library website, here or contact 9800 6430


National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is an annual campaign that aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books.

Now in its 18th successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children's book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.

Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. NSS2018's book is Hickory Dickory Dash written by Tony Wilson, illustrated by Laura Wood and published by Scholastic.

Join us for National Similtaneous Storytime at your local Robinsons Bookshop! We'll be reading Hickory Dickory Dash and doing some fun activities!
When: 11am, May 23rd 2018
Where: Your local Robinsons Bookshop
