First Chapters at Brunswick Bound

Brunswick Bound

Event Date: 1 March 2019
Author / Presenters: Andrew Brion, Lee Kofman, Alice Robinson

On the first Friday night of each month, Brunswick Bound hosts a night of local author readings.

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), fiction from Alice Robinson (The Glad Shout) and poetry from Andrew Brion (Soul Moves).

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

Light refreshments will be served at the event.

Dr Lee Kofman is a Russian-born, Israeli-Australian novelist, short story writer, essayist, memoirist and former academic based in Melbourne. She is the author of three fiction books (published in Israel in Hebrew) and the memoir "The Dangerous Bride" (Melbourne University Press 2014). Lee is also the co-editor of "Rebellious Daughters" (Ventura Press, 2016), an anthology of personal essays by prominent Australian authors. Her short works have been widely published in Australia, USA, Canada, Israel, the UK and Scotland. Lee holds a PhD in social sciences and MA in creative writing, and is a mentor and teacher of writing. She is also a regular public speaker and panel moderator.

Alice Robinson grew up in Parkville and Wallan. She earned a Bachelor of Creative Arts from The University of Melbourne and a PhD in Creative Writing from Victoria University, where she was awarded the Vice Chancellor’s Award for Research and Research Training. Her fiction, essays and reviews have been published widely in literary journals, including Kill Your Darlings, The Lifted Brow, Overland, TEXT, Fireflies, Arena and Meanjin. Alice’s debut novel, "Anchor Point" (Affirm Press, 2015), was longlisted for The Stella Prize and the Indie Book Awards (debut fiction) in 2016. She now lives in Warragul with her family.

Andrew Brion came to writing poetry later in life. Firstly for himself, as a means of self-expression. Later, for friends as a way of communicating both ideas and feelings. And later still, as a mechanism for connecting with a broader community of colleagues and local writers in the northern suburbs on Melbourne. It was this latter group who persuaded Andrew to publish for the first time in a poetry collection called "Soul Moves", which focusses on themes of love, lore and connection. Andrew has published in various Melbourne magazines and has also been active in Spoken Word poetry. His writing broadly covers themes exploring our philosophical, emotional and intellectual relationship with the world; themes of travel, and contemporary themes including politics. He grew up in the north of England and now lives in Melbourne.
