Meet tomorrow’s biggest authors today as we shine a spotlight on debut Australian authors.
Established in 2014, the KYD First Book Club partners with local publishers to each month promote a new release debut book of fiction or non-fiction that KYD is gunning for everyone to read!
Through a series of events, online content, podcast coverage and profiles, the KYD First Book Club encourages wide-ranging and long-lasting conversations about these authors and their books both on and off the screen.
August First Book Club: Michael Fitzgerald’s The Pacific Room
Our First Book Club pick for September is Michael Fitzgerald’s The Pacific Room (Transit Lounge). Set in an evocative tropical landscape haunted by the lives and spirits which drift across it, The Pacific Room tells of Robert Louis Stevenson’s last days in Samoa. Both a love letter to Samoa and a lush and tender exploration of artistic creation, this is a novel of secret passions and merging dualities.
Watch out for more on the novel on our website and podcast throughout September!
