2017 Clunes Booktown Festival – Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th May
We will be there!
The charming Goldfields village of Clunes is internationally recognised as a Booktown.
Each year it hosts the annual Clunes Booktown Festival, which attracts 18,000 people to browse and buy from local bookshops and many booksellers from out of town. Other attractions are author talks, workshops, live entertainment, a kids village, and good food.
Central to this year’s Festival, the organisers are curating an exhibition of rare and beautiful books in the fine old Wesley bluestone church, built in 1864. The exhibition will be headlined by the State Library of Victoria, whose display will focus on their rare books collection. Alongside us will be leading antiquarian book dealers who will have some of their finest stock on display and for sale. A great weekend for book buyers, book lovers and history buffs.
Every day we receive dozens of Emails, tweets and messages from a diverse range of colleagues and institutions who send informative articles, upcoming and current exhibitions, research and just plain breath-taking and cute images. We regularly post a selection on our Facebook page.
