First Chapters at Brunswick Bound

Brunswick Bound

Event Date: 7 September 2018
Author / Presenters: Brunswick Bound

First Chapters is an event series featuring readings by local authors. It's a wonderful opportunity for readers to discover new authors - and for authors to discover new audiences.

In September we are featuring John Tesarsch, Harry Sadler and Hugh McGinlay.

Check out the Brunswick Bound website to find out more about forthcoming First Chapter Events.

John Tesarsch is a writer and barrister. He used to be a professional cellist based in Vienna, but had to give up music due to a debilitating allergy to the rosin used on cello bows. He returned to Melbourne to study Law and became a barrister, then was diagnosed with tongue cancer and spent a year undergoing extensive treatments. John is the author of the acclaimed novels The Philanthropist and The Last Will and Testament of Henry Hoffman. John will be reading from Dinner with the Dissidents which will be released in September.

Harry Saddler is the author of We Both Know: Ten Stories About Relationships (2005) and Small Moments (2007), a short novel about the aftermath of the Canberra bushfires of 2003, both published by Ginninderra Press. In 2014 he was joint-winner of the Melbourne Writers Festival/Blurb Inc ‘Blog-to-Book Challenge’ for his blog Noticing Animals, resulting in his third book Not Birdwatching: Reflections on Noticing Animals. His non-fiction writing about the ecological, physical, and philosophical interactions between humans and animals has been published online at Meanjin and the Wheeler Centre, and in print in The Lifted Brow. He has twice been shortlisted for The Lifted Brow’s Prize for Experimental Non-fiction. Harry will be reading from The Eastern Curlew.

Hugh McGinlay is a Melbourne based writer and musician. He was recently longlisted for the Ned Kelly Awards in the category of Best Crime for Pachyderm, which Hugh will be reading from at First Chapters.
