On the Road

at Esso BHP Billiton Wellington Entertainment Centre


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 the Wheeler Centre heads out of Melbourne to bring ten great events to regional towns across the state.

This month we’re in Sale with international publishing sensation Matthew Reilly. He’ll be discussing his particular brand of adrenaline-fuelled action thrillers, the benefits of pure unadulterated escapism, and his new book Scarecrow and the Army of Thieves.

On the Road

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.
