First Chapters at Brunswick Bound with Lee Kofman, Alice Robinson & Julienne van Loon

Brunswick Bound

Event Date: 29 March 2019
Author / Presenters: Lee Kofman, Alice Robinson, Julienne van Loon

On the first Friday night of each month, Brunswick Bound Upstairs hosts a night of local author readings. This month our event was cancelled due to a power outage on Sydney Road, so we have rescheduled it for Friday 29 March.

It's your chance to discover a new author and for authors to discover new audiences.

In March, the event will feature non-fiction from Lee Kofman (Imperfect) and Julienne van Loon (The Thinking Woman) and fiction from Alice Robinson (The Glad Shout).

Each author will read from their work and there will be a short Q&A afterwards.

Light refreshments will be served at the event.

We asked each author some questions to get to know them better - you can read what they had to say on the Brunswick Bound blog.
