The cream of the international literary crop gathers in Melbourne for hundreds of thought-provoking events over ten days

Melbourne's largest literary festival brings together fascinating talks and discussions by authors from all over the world. Readers and writers from all walks of life are welcome at the festival with a program of events to suit the casual Saturday afternoon reader to full-time word nerds. Better still around a quarter of all festival events are free (that means more money to buy books). 

Singer-songwriter Andrew WK will launch the festival, and other guests include acclaimed journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates, who will talk about representation in art.
