Following the success of The Edible Balcony in which Indira Naidoo transformed her tiny 13th floor balcony into a bountiful kitchen garden, comes her new book The Edible City.

Join Indira as she tells us about The Edible City, in which she not only offers practical advice and gardening tips for creating community gardens, but also shares stories from some of Australia's most innovative and memorable kitchen gardens - including the audacious garden in the sky at the Wayside Chapel that provides a haven for homeless visitors and the Mt Carmel school bush-tucker garden that reconnects Indigenous kids with their heritage.

Gail Jones is one of Australia's most respected and intelligent authors and we are very fortunate to be hosting an evening to hear her talking about her most recent novel A Guide to Berlin.

A Guide to Berlin traces the strength and fragility of human connections through biographies and secrets.  The title A Guide to Berlin, is the name of a short story written by Vladimir Nabokov in 1925 when as a young man, he lived in the city. Jones' novel traces six international travellers, each enthralled by Nabokov, when after a moment of devastating violence the group is shattered apart.

Jones herself spent 12 months in Berlin before writing this novel, so this promises to be an very special evening.

Australian author Stephanie Bishop joins us to discuss her recent novel, The Other Side of the World - a book that in our opinion is one of the most assured Australian novels of 2015. 

A lecturer of creative writing at University of New South Wales, Stephanie Bishop's first novel The Singing had her named one of the Sydney Morning Herald's Best Young Australian Noveiists.  

Stephanie is an incredible talent and an author we know we are going to be hearing more about in the coming years.
