Safdar Ahmed in conversation 

Join us in the shop as Safdar Ahmed discusses his new graphic novel. Interweaving journalism, history and autobiography, Still Alive is an intensely personal indictment of Australia’s refugee detention policies and procedures. It is also a searching reflection on the redemptive power of art. And death metal.

Book Launch

Nearly Lunch by Peter Bakowski and Ken Bolton

Nearly Lunch presents: a spectrum of individuals, from the naive to the kind,  the caustic to the stoic, pleased, though, all of them, that it's NEARLY LUNCH. An exposé, a love song, a group portrait. And a modern fable of disturbing power. Join us in the shop as we celebrate the launch of this new, collaborative volume of poetry.  

Bookings are essential for this event. Please RSVP to
