Presented by The Wheeler Centre and Open House Melbourne

‘We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us,’ Winston Churchill once said. In this special collaboration with The Wheeler Centre, we’ll host intimate conversations with Melbourne writers in the local buildings and places that have shaped their work.

Hear from Chris Womersley in the Fitzroy apartment building that inspired his award-winning novel, Cairo, or Tony Birch at the Abbotsford Convent, discussing the origins of Ghost River. Robyn Annear will appear at tucked-away Presgrave Place arcade, famous for its connection to Cole’s Book Arcade and featured in Annear’s books City Lost and Found and Bearbrass. Keep an eye on our website for details about a rare opportunity to step inside a rarely seen corner of one of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings, currently closed to the public for repair.

Each afternoon will include a talk, tour and treat, with afternoon tea included with your booking. Savour the unique atmosphere of some of Melbourne’s most beautiful and idiosyncratic buildings while listening to readings from your favourite books.
