For our first meeting of the year, we are trialling a new venue in Melbourne's eastern suburbs - the Coffee Head Cafe in Camberwell, just behind Burke Rd, near Camberwell junction.  Close to trams, Camberwell railway station, and free (yes, free, no charge) parking! On top of that, we're able to provide a more substantial menu, which includes a stand up cocktail menu (3 courses), one alcoholic or soft beverage, tea and coffee.


Dr Joe Reich, by day an ophthalmologist (and important as eye health is to editors, that's not why he's speaking) but by moonlight a novelist, and also the newly appointed director of Jewish Book Week.  Dr Reichwill speak about the similarities and differences of being a novelist and writer of professional medical textbooks, what it's like to run a literary festival - and - should anyone really want to know - the ins and outs of laser surgery. Come along and let us know what you think of what could be one of our new rotating venues, feast on the new finger-food offering, network with the editing sorority and be both entertained and informed. Dr Reich's novels –Building Bridges,I Know Precious Little,Book of the Weak– will also be available for sale on the night, $10 each (cash only, please; proceeds to be donated to charity).
