Victorian Booktown

The 2008 Clunes Booktown event was held over the weekend of May 3-4. "The Age" ran a report on what was to be expected at this year's gathering, ABC Radio's "Book Show" was there and spoke to author John Marsden, "The Brisbane Times" ran a feature, and "The Courier" out of Ballarat reported favourably on the whole event.

On the blog front:

  • Beth Driscoll found the books a bit underwhelming
  • Hackpacker has a "great day"
  • Chocolate Cobwebs combined a visit to Clunes with another stop at a bookshop near Castlemaine
  • The Book Grocer sold books in Clunes and promises a follow-up to this post
  • Caroline took along a friend and found a friendly atmosphere
It sounds like the weekend was a great event. I just hope my life's under enough control by this time next year for me to go along.
