Melbourne Writers Festival – Bookwallah Exhibition

Standard

Bookwallah Exhibition

From the  photo you can see it was a display of books and suitcases.

It is a collaboration between travelling writers from India and Australia where many books have been donated from Australia to India via a travelling library exhibition.  Authors could have charged money for all the books, but they donated them to India for free!

It is a great concept as people in India can then access these Australian books – some about Australia – which are hard to get in India. At the exhibition there were also books from India. This helps in understanding different cultures.

Went to this at the State Library VIC on 24th August 2013.
