  • In case you haven't heard, we have a series of webinars happening with our library service called Library Through the Lens. Find out more about it and book in here: https://www.marion.sa.gov.au/library-through-the-lens

    If you miss out or can't make the webinars, we will be recording some sessions and making them available for you here on the podcast!

    Listen to author Ashley Kalagian Blunt in conversation with Katherine Arguile as she discusses her wonderfully eccentric account of how an exemplary Canadian does her very best to be a better Australian.

    When Ashley persuades her new husband Steve to leave snowy Canada and join her for a year Down Under, she looks forward to an easy transition. After all, Australia’s just Canada with more sunshine and strange animals, right? But they soon discover things aren’t so simple.

    For the sake of her marriage and her happiness, Ashley must find an Australia she can belong to: she decides to travel the country, learn its history, decode its cultural quirks and connect with as many residents as she can meet. How to Be Australian is a remarkable memoir, at once familiar and faraway, that shines a fresh, funny and fascinating light onto the country we think we know.

  • Iain Reid's I'm Thinking of Ending Things blew Paula's mind so she insisted she and Jayne feature it for this month's episode. But does Jayne feel the same way? And does the Netflix movie version live up to the book? The ladies dive into this mind bending and divisive book!

    From the bestselling author of The Land Girls comes a beautifully realised novel that speaks to the true history and real experiences of post-war Australian women.

    We hope you enjoy this recording of our live event.

    Listen to debut novelist and winner of the 2019 Penguin Literary Prize Imbi Neeme as she discusses her book The Spill, an exploration of the moments - small and large - upon which our lives can pivot.

    In 1982, a car overturns on a remote West Australian road. Nobody is hurt, but the impact is felt for decades. For sisters Nicole and Samantha this moment will echo through their lives and continually affect their responses to individual experiences and to each other.

    The Spill is a captivating depiction of the bond between sisters and a family that find its way back to one another.

  • Jayne and Paula were not prepared for the enormity of the themes tackled in this month's pick, winner of the 2019 Miles Franklin Award, Too Much Lip.

    *Trigger warning. Themes of physical and sexual abuse discussed. Please skip to the 30 minute mark if you would rather avoid these topics.

    What Jayne had last month anticipated as a fun read the ladies find out is a complicated, fast paced, unflinching look at an Aboriginal family plagued by inter-generational trauma and abuse. There is lots to discuss and learn.

    Too Much Lip by Melissa Lucashenko

    Drawing from Katherine's own cross-cultural experience lived between Tokyo, London, and now Adelaide, Katherine's book explores the weight of intergenerational trauma through the eyes of a mother and daughter on a tortuous path to forgiveness.

    Unfolding in vivid Japanese settings, this story illuminates how different cultures navigate grief and memory, and what happens when we rediscover our ancestral roots.

  • This month's book has been described as "Sex in the City" meets "Catch Me If You Can" with Instagram filters. Jayne and Paula could barely wait to record the podcast so they could talk about the unbelievable grifter who is Anna Delvey and her one time BFF who wrote about her in My Friend Anna. Later, they dish about yet two more Trump books due out (one of them they decide they might actually read), and more.

    Join the author who became a global sensation even before her debut novel was published, following an international rights frenzy that has not been seen for an Australian book since Markus Zusak's, The Book Thief.

    Set when the women’s suffrage movement was at its height and the Great War loomed, The Dictionary of Lost Words reveals a lost narrative, hidden between the lines of a history written by men. It’s a delightful, lyrical and deeply thought-provoking celebration of words, and the power of language to shape our experience of the world.

  • You know Jayne's gotta be happy because this episode is jam packed with historical fiction! Paula breaks her habit of only reading books set in the modern era with not one, not two, but three of her reads this month.

  • Our world has turned upside down since last month and we know that every one of us is grappling, trying to adapt to all the changes.

    Jayne and Paula discuss what it's like to still be working at the library without borrowers! Most libraries are currently closed but don't worry, the ladies highlight a list of options for accessing the library online. Then they jump into this month's selection. TRIGGER WARNING! My Dark Vanessa contains themes of abuse, particularly sexual abuse of a minor. Those who wish not to hear this part can still listen to the beginning but then please skip to the 35 minute mark.

    Note: at one point Paula mentions Hachette "authors" walking out in protest of Woody Allen's book. She misspoke and should have said "employees."
