Hear what makes these authors tick over a grand meal
November is shaping up to be one of those months that contains all my favourite elements: books, good food, and a glass of wine. To add to my pleasure, this series of events feeding my joy include both minimal travel and funds. What's not to love?

The iconic Grand View Hotel in Cleveland is hosting a number of Literary Dinners and Luncheons suitable for a wide audience with varied interests. For the lovers of home renovations Cherie Barber, affectionately known as the Reno Queen, will be spruiking her book, Renovating For Profit, at a dinner on November 3rd, commencing at 7pm.

Much-loved celebrity from numerous TV home improvement shows, Scott Cam, is promoting Scotty's Top Aussie Sheds, which I predict will be the most popular stocking filler for Christmas 2017. Cam will be at the Grandview Hotel on November 10th, commencing at 7pm.

Again for the fellows, or those with a military bent, Chris Masters' latest release is sure to be a source of great interest, No Front Line - Australia's Special Forces at War in Afghanistan. Meet Chris on November 13th commencing at 12pm. Ahhh, a lunch with a view across the bay to Stradbroke Island. How good is this!
