February Good Reading is out now!

08 Feb 2018

The secrets that bind and those that divide are at the heart of The Secrets at Ocean's Edge, a historical family drama by debut author Kali Napier. She talks to Good Reading about how her great-grandfather's struggle through the Great Depression sparked the idea for the book. Sociologist Tanya Bretherton reflects on the brutal real-life story of a dead baby that washed up in a suitcase on the shores of Sydney Harbour in 1923, which she revisits in her book, The Suitcase Baby

Take a trip down the world's best cultural trails, learn how odd factors such as the font of the menu can influence our food choices in How We Eat With Our Eyes and Think With Our Stomachs, and take a journey beneath the waves in a magical adventure created by young people at the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne with much-loved Australian authors Alison Lester and Jane Godwin The Silver Sea. Their unforgettable collaboration explores the hidden treasures of our seas and celebrates the joy of exploration – and of returning home.

We hope you all had a fabulous holiday and that it's everyone's New Year's resolution to read more books!
