Booktown on Sundays

Clunes is a place where it’s possible to have great conversations every day, but each month the Booktown on Sundays Series steps it up a notch. The talks bring writers who’ve written outstanding books about important ideas to Clunes. Attendees get the chance to meet the authors and hear the stories behind the books.

Where?  The Warehouse in Fraser Street, Clunes.
When?  2pm on the third Sunday of each month.
Cost? FREE  Talks are free, but the authors’ books are on sale at the event, so bring cash or card to satisfy the urge.

Also, keep an eye out for writing workshops run in conjunction with Writers Victoria.
