On the Road
View all events in this series
Why should Melbourne get all the fun? It’s not like if you live east of the Dandenongs or west of Bacchus Marsh you’re not interested in books, writing and ideas. In 2011, we’re getting in the Tarago and bringing our great events across the state. This time, On the Road pays a visit to Wangaratta with David Astle and Jane Clifton.
David Astle is a full-time word nerd. You may know his loud shirts from SBS’s Letters and Numbers. Or his black-and-white boxes in Friday’s Age. He’s also the author of Wordburger (How to be a champion puzzler in 20 quick bites), plus Riddledom, Puzzled and Cluetopia. His favourite word is ‘acrobat’.
Jane Clifton is an actor, singer, author and genuine show-business all-rounder.
We can’t wait to get back on the road again – bringing some of our favourite writers to regional Victoria. We’ll be packing up the car with books and authors, travelling from country to coast … and making sure Melbourne doesn’t get all the literary fun. Look out for our bootful of books – coming to a town near you.
