UNESCO City of Literature

UNESCO has named Melbourne as its second City of Literature, after Edinburgh received the first such award in 2004. Beyond the obvious attention this will bring, as well as a new Centre for Books and Ideas that the State Government will build in the city, I'm not sure what this announcement will mean on the ground. However, as I'm involved with the organisation of a major literary event in a couple of years time, I guess I'll find out soon enough.
