New Adelaide Fiction: Rachael Mead & Katherine Tamiko Arguile

2020 is proving to be a bumper year for new Adelaide fiction – and we're very pleased to be hosting our first Imprints Zoom event with two brilliant new debut authors, published by Affirm Press: Katherine Tamiko Arguile (The Things She Owned) and Rachael Mead (The Application of Pressure).

The Things She Owned reveals stories from Tokyo during and after the war, through the possessions left to Erika by her mother, the cruel and complicated Michiko. The two women's stories progress and entwine, uncovering secrets from Erika's past, too. The Application of Pressure traces the experiences of two paramedics, Tash and Joel, over the decades, each chapter told through a different emergency – some sad, some tense, all fascinating. We get to know these friends and workmates as their relationships with each other, and the job, deepen.

Our bookseller Jo Case will be in conversation with Katherine and Rachael about these fascinating books.

 

 

This is an online event and free to attend, though registration is essential. You can register here.

Holiday Trading Hours and Christmas Deliveries

Season's Readings from your local indie bookseller



Dear readers,

This is just a quick note to let you know that as of today, Tuesday 12 December, 2017, we can no longer guarantee Australia Post deliveries prior to the Christmas public holidays. We still offer free in store collection on every online order and will continue to process orders right through until Christmas Eve. If you have any questions about an order you've placed, please call us on (08) 8231 4454 to check the status.

In our final message of the year, we'd like to thank you for the immense support you've given us throughout 2017. From a record-breaking Love Your Bookshop Day, to book signings with some of Australia's leading thinkers and cultural icons, the success of the past year is evidence of what we can achieve with a passionate community behind us.

With every book you purchase, every event you attend, and each new friend you introduce to your favourite local bookshop, you help to strengthen the culture of independent bookselling here in Adelaide. With the recent launch of an online retail giant upon our shores, we expect competition to be fierce in 2018. But we're confident that there remains a place for independent bookshops in Australia’s cultural landscape, because we offer something no online retailer can: air-conditioning.

In all seriousness though, thanks for everything you do to help us grow. We simply would not be here without you, and we look forward to plying you with reading material, impulse purchases, and unsolicited advice for many years to come.

Wishing you a happy and prosperous Christmas and New Year,

Jason, Katherine & Kara
