Endless Book Club

Melbourne

17 March 2017

Self Publish, Be Happy presents a large-scale public book club across the Melbourne Art Book Fair 2017 in National Gallery of Victoria’s Federation Court.

Visitors can join local book groups of diverse backgrounds and interests – from cub scouts and birdwatchers to feminists and students – as they discuss art books, and collaborate in a literary conversation which seems truly endless.
