Melbourne's Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas

You'll recall that in August 2008 Melbourne was named the second UNESCO City of Literature. That resulted in the announcement that the State Library of Victoria would host a new Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas. The first director of that centre was announced at the end of 2008 as Caro Llewellyn, then New York-based. A month or so back Llewellyn withdrew from the position citing unexpected personal events. So the hunt was on again for another director.

Now the centre has appointed Chrissy Sharp, the Australian general manager of Sadler's Wells Theatre in London. You can read more background about this story by Susan Wyndham.
