Tuesday December 8th 2009

Well it was an action-packed show today (as much as it gets for us, anyway!).

John Bartlett review: "The World Beneath" by Cate Kennedy.

JB mentioned that Paul Kelly will be appearing, along with other writers at A Gala night of Storytelling at the Melbourne Town Hall, Saturday 13 February 2010 at 06:00PM. This is one of the first in a programme of events for the Wheeler Centre for Books, ideas and writing.

He also gave a glowing review of Bruce Pascoe's novel "Bloke". "It's just a fantastic story, really... it's a funny, funny book... he does dialogue brilliantly."

Bernard's book list this week:
"The Good Soldiers" by David Finkel
"Wonders of a Godless World" by Andrew McGahan
"The Museum of Innocence" by Orhan Pamuk

Bernard also recommends the Australian Literary Review, published on the first Monday of the month in "The Australian" newspaper.

Robyn read excerpts from poems by John Keats today in preparation for the coming movie "Bright Star".
"On first looking into Chapman's Homer"
"Ode to Autumn"

Tunes featured in today's show:
"Christmas must be tonight" Paul Kelly
"Let the Franklin Flow" Goanna
"Teenage Fury" Megan Washington

James Watt, Art teacher at Sacred Heart, reviewed "Cubism and Australian Art" by Lesley Harding.
