Meet the Author: Mark Brandi


Meet the Author: Mark Brandi

We are very excited to announce our first Meet the Author evening in the bookshop since late 2019. Please join us in hearing Mark Brandi, best-selling author of Wimmera and The Rip, talking about his latest crime novel The Others. Mark will be in conversation with Matilda Bookshop's Gavin Williams at 630pm on Wednesday August 11 at Matilda Bookshop. This will be an in-person event and will be run within all current S.A.Health Covid guidelines. This promises to be an engaging chat with one of Australia's favourite crime writers.
The Others is an unforgettable novel that explores the darkness in our world with the light only a child can find. On his eleventh birthday, Jacob's father gives him a diary. To write about things that happen. About what he and his father do on their
farm. About the sheep, the crop, the fox and the dam. But Jacob knows some things should not be written down. Some things should not be remembered. The only things he knows for sure is what what his father has taught him. Sheltered, protected, isolated. But who is his father protecting him from? And how far will his father go to keep the world at bay?
Mark Brandi's bestselling novel, Wimmera, won the coveted British Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger, and was named
Best Debut at the 2018 Australian Indie Book Awards. It was also shortlisted for the Australian Book Industry Awards Literary Fiction Book of the Year, and the Matt Richell Award for New Writer of the Year. His second novel, The Rip, was published to critical acclaim in 2019. Mark graduated with a criminal justice degree and worked extensively in the justice system, before changing direction and deciding to write. Originally from Italy, he grew up in rural Victoria. Mark now lives in Melbourne.

Tickets are $10 (includes a glass of wine) or you can purchase Ticket + Book (& glass of wine) for $33 (book to be collected at the event). The Others will also be on sale for the night for $27.99.
