'Out of the Ivory Tower: ways of telling history' with Nick Brodie and Kiera Lindsey

Historians Dr Nick Brodie and Dr Kiera Lindsey have found popular success with their recent books on forgotten or little-known happenings from Australia's past. Brodie’s latest book, 1787: The Lost Chapters of Australia's Beginnings, challenges our national understanding of the ‘discovery’ of the continent, while Lindsey's compelling tale, The Convict’s Daughter: The Scandal that Shocked a Colony, recounts a meticulously researched story from the author’s own family. Join us, as these two rising stars of Australian history share their secrets in a special Talking History event:

Monday 24 October 5.30 for 6pm-7.30pm
Drill Hall, Torrens Parade Ground
Onsite parking (entrance off Victoria Drive)
Admission is FREE but registrations required

The Adelaide Festival of Ideas | 21-23 October, 2016

Imprints Booksellers - Monday, October 17, 2016

The Adelaide Festival of Ideas returns this weekend with around 70 thinkers tackling topics ranging from the precarious future of the world's citrus industry to contemporary challenges facing democracy and human rights. The vast majority of sessions are free though a few highlights are worth shelling out the modest ticket price. In particular, we recommend Erin Brockovich in conversation with Phillip Adams and a special session celebrating poetry, music and story telling on the theme of Home. You can find details of speakers, events and sessions online or collect your old fashioned paper-and-ink program in store. This year, as in years past, Imprints Booksellers are pleased to partner with the festival as its official bookseller. You'll find us hosting a pop-up bookshop in the AFoI marquee, located near Elder and Bonython Halls. We hope to see you there!






Warming Winter Reads - June 2016

Imprints Booksellers - Monday, June 20, 2016

 


Is there a better remedy against the winter months than hot tea and good books? C.S. Lewis thought not:

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough
or a book long enough to suit me.”

With rain drumming against the windows and the heat set to high, we've put together a selection of reading suggestions to spark your curiosity and ignite your imagination. New offerings from Lionel Shriver, Ellen Van Neerven, Lindy West, Edward O. Wilson and more promise something for everyone at Imprints Booksellers but, sadly, tea is not included. Best to brew your own, we think. In the mean time, happy winter reading!


Upstairs at the Strand: Writers in Conversation at the Legendary Bookstore

edited by Jessica Strand and Andrea Aguilar, Paperback, $22.99

Based on a series of talks pairing writers of note at NYC’s beloved bookstore, Upstairs at the Strand offers candid and behind-the-scenes accounts of the ways leading writers work, think, and live. The book features such celebrated novelists, playwrights, and poets as Martin Amis, Paul Auster, Renata Adler, Patti Smith, and Mark Strand, as well as contemporary stars such as Alison Bechdel, Junot Díaz, and Téa Obreht.



The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction

by Neil Gaiman, Paperback, $29.99

The View from the Cheap Seats draws together, for the first time ever, a myriad of non-fiction writing by international phenomenon and Sunday Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman. From Make Good Art, the speech he gave at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia that went viral, to pieces on artists and legends including Terry Pratchett, Lou Reed and Ray Bradbury, the collection offers a glimpse into the head and heart of one of the most acclaimed writers of our time.



The Gustav Sonata

by Rose Tremain, Paperback, $29.99

Fierce, astringent, profoundly tender – and spanning the twentieth century – Rose Tremain's beautifully orchestrated novel tells  the story of Gustav Perle who grows up in a small town in Switzerland, where the horrors of the Second World War seem like far-off concerns. Exploring themes of betrayal and the struggle for happiness, The Gustav Sonata is a testament to the passionate love of a childhood friendship as it is tested over a lifetime.



The American People: Volume 1 - Search for My Heart

by Larry Kramer, Paperback, $36.99

Forty years in the making, The American People sets forth Larry Kramer's reimagined vision of his homeland's history. This is the story of one nation under a plague, contaminated by greed, hate, and disease and host to transcendent acts of courage and kindness. Volume One of this remarkable opus is a work of ribald satire, prophetic outrage, and dazzling imagination. It is an encyclopedic indictment, written with outrageous love and a sharp eye for the pitfalls of contemporary American culture.



Happy People Read and Drink Coffee

by Agnes Martin-Lugand, Paperback, $27.99

Diane has a charmed life as a wife, a mother and the owner of a literary café in Paris until a tragic accident claims the lives of her husband and daughter. Trapped and haunted by her memories, Diane withdraws from friends and family, unable and unwilling to move forward. But, one year on, Diane shocks her loved ones by leaving Paris to move to a small town on the Irish coast to rebuild her life alone. At once heartbreaking and uplifting, Happy People Read and Drink Coffee is the inspirational story of a woman finding new meaning in the wake of devastating loss.
