Have you ever wanted to learn the art of collecting vintage penguins or partake in adult story time? Then Melbourne Rare Book Week is for you! Since 2012, ANZAAB, the University of Melbourne and eight other literary institutions have worked together to curate a series of workshops, talks, and events which stand apart from typical literary events. Last year, 44 free events were held across Melbourne, and this year is set to be even better. Discover the mean streets of Melbourne, join a storytelling session complete with wine and cheese and the tales from Brothers Grimm, attend a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-inspired afternoon tea or learn about collecting books in a series of lectures.
