Andrew Pippos presents Lucky's

Andrew Pippos presents 'Lucky's'. A magical saga of love, family and second chances.

NSW Reads is a big book club, and everyone in New South Wales is invited.

Andrew Pippos, author of Lucky's, will be in conversation with Amy Heap from Riverina Regional Library with the support of NSW Public Libraries Association and NSW Reads.

Described as “a must-read saga, and a gripping monument to Greek diaspora” by The Guardian Australia, central to the theme of Lucky’s is the iconic Greek milk bar/cafĂ© businesses, found in so many Australian towns and suburbs.

Lucky's is a story of family. A story about migration. It is also about a man called Lucky. His restaurant chain. A fire that changed everything. A New Yorker article which might save a career. The mystery of a missing father. An impostor who got the girl. An unthinkable tragedy. A roll of the dice. And a story of love - lost, sought and won again (at last).

NSW Reads aims to celebrate the heritage of Greek Australian milk bars and cafes and the migrant experiences of food and community as readers from all over the state share a reading experience.
