The Writer's Banquet

In 2010 the Wheeler Centre partnered with Ramona Koval and the Radio National Book Show to present Reading on Vocation. This acclaimed series delved into the reading habits of professionals ranging from captains of industry to nuns. This winter, we’re partnering again to feed your literary appetite over three mouth-watering sessions. The path between the kitchen and the library is a well-trodden one, from the boom in food writers to the cult of the celebrity chef. Keep the cold nights at bay with our degustation menu of literary snacks.
