The Bookwallah

Take a 2000km train ride across India with Asialink’s The Bookwallah, the world’s first roving writers’ festival. This free exhibition charts the epic literary adventure of five writers and their ingenious luggage – a travelling library housed in kangaroo-leather suitcases – on a month-long quest to explore Indian writing and culture.

In partnership with the Melbourne Writers Festival, you’ll have the chance to meet some of the Indian and Australian authors before they pack the exhibition into their suitcases and catch a train north for The Bookwallah’s Australian tour.
