Reading Victoria with Maxine Beneba Clarke, Khalid Warsame and more

Reading Victoria was a 10th Anniversary project of Melbourne UNESCO City of Literature Office, exploring Victoria’s suburbs and towns in fiction and nonfiction, poetry and prose, in celebration of Melbourne’s 10th anniversary as a UNESCO City of Literature.
