The majority of the bookshops run programs, launches, talks and happenings. Readings has a lively events calendar and Reader's Feast runs events and mini festivals, just to mention a few. Even our comic shops run panel sessions and signings. Libraries across Victoria also offer a full calendar of discussions and events.
Melbourne is blessed with a few standout one-off events. The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) runs an annual Art Book Fair.

Melbourne Knowledge Week offers a lively week-long program where discussions are centred on creativity, innovation and ideas.
