Brief Encounters: Literary travellers in Australia

Melbourne Rare Book Week

Event Date: 30 June 2018
Author / Presenters: Melbourne Library Service, Susannah Fullerton & Chris Browne

Many literary giants have visited Australia and recorded their observations. Was Darwin impressed with what he saw? Did Kipling prefer Melbourne or Sydney? Why did Trollope stay so long? Was Mark Twain's humour appreciated? Why was Conan Doyle here?

Come along and hear where these visitors went and what they had to say. Learn more about Susannah's book Brief Encounters.

Saturday 30th June, 6:00pm - 7:30pm [Bookings required]
