NSW Reads: Lucky's by Andrew Pippos

Join book lovers across the state as they celebrate summer by sharing the reading experience of Lucky’s, the magical must read Australian saga of the year.

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

The NSW Public Library Association is thrilled to announce the very first state-wide reading program NSW Reads. From the 10th of December to the 17th of February 2021, library members across the state are encouraged to read Sydney author Andrew Pippos’s debut novel, Lucky’s (Picador).

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

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/café businesses, found in so many Australian towns and suburbs.

NSW Reads will celebrate the heritage of these venues and the migrant experiences of food and community as readers from all over the state share a reading experience.

To celebrate NSW Reads, join us for live events throughout January and February 2021.

Andrew Pippos introduces his new novel Lucky’s, an unforgettable Australian story about the changing fortunes of a man named Lucky, his chain of Greek cafes and the people whose lives he shapes, and who in turn shape him.
