Author Talk: Robyn Annear

Come and hear Robyn speak about her latest book, Corners of Melbourne at our Emerald Hill Library.

What better defines a city than its street corners? 

A corner gives you a starting point, a destination and a place to turn. It’s furnished with pillar boxes, newsstands and tram stops, and lamp-posts for light and lounging.

Where would you be likeliest to find a pub? At the corner, of course. And who better than Robyn Annear to usher you around the corners of Melbourne, and reveal their bizarre, baroque and mostly forgotten stories?

When and Where:

Tuesday 27 February
6:30 pm to 8 pm
Emerald Hill Library
