Now We Are Ten: a Book Collector's Reflections on a Decade of Melbourne Rare Book Week

Since its inception in 2012, Melbourne Rare Book Week (MRBW) has become an important festival in Melbourne’s cultural life.

The current Program Director will reflect on the evolution of MRBW from the original concept to this tenth iteration of the festival. He will take a book collector’s view of its importance, as well as its international significance as a model for similar festivals.

Appropriately, the event is co-hosted by The Melbourne Athenaeum Library, one of the original and ongoing partners of MRBW.

Presented by Rare Books Melbourne in partnership with The Melbourne Athenaeum Library
Doors open at 6pm, event 6:30-7:30pm, Monday 22nd July. This is a free event but bookings are essential and can be made here
