My Favourite Bookshops – Blog Post 6 – Dymocks Camberwell
Dymocks Camberwell is located in Camberwell Place at The Well Shopping Centre, Shop 110B, Level 1/793 Burke Rd, Camberwell VIC 3124.
I called in today to sign some copies of A Cat Called Trim, details of which will be going out in the Dymocks Camberwell newsletter to customers and schools next week.
Over the years I’ve visited this ‘walls-lined-with-books’ bookstore many times to buy gift books but I’ve also visited many times to attend book-signings both by myself and with other authors for special evenings. I’ve cut and pasted the following from their website:
Dymocks Camberwell is a family operated store and proud to be part of the local community. With friendly staff, personalised recommendations, large children’s section and ‘hard to find’ book search service. They also carry an extensive range of quirky gifts, calendars and cards.
Dymocks runs regular events featuring local and international authors, celebrities, sports stars and politicians promoting their books, including ‘Meet the Author‘ evenings at local venues. They often have a large selection of autographed books for sale.
The First Tuesday Book Club is held a local restaurant each week. You are not expected to all read one book, just join fellow book lovers to discuss books generally and meet local guest authors over drinks and nibbles.
I’ve found a few photos of book signings and readings which have happened in the bookshop, always lovely to look back on. A great store for supporting authors and illustrators.
