New online book club: Melbourne Reads

Melbourne Reads


Melbourne Reads is a new online book club for readers keen to share ideas about great new books and dig deeper into the literary, cultural, and historical contexts from which these books emerge.

Presented by the Melbourne Writers Festival (MWF) in partnership with the Faculty of Arts, Melbourne Reads kicks off with a Q&A with Rebecca Giggs, author of the award-winning Fathoms: the world in the whale. Giggs joins MWF artistic director Michaela McGuire on Wednesday, 31 March to discuss what it means to write about nature in a time of technological change and ecological crisis. Ticket holders will gain exclusive access to an expert reading guide prepared by Associate Professor Sara Wills.
