Literary Speed Dating Down Under

Here’s an interesting idea.  Melbourne’s Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas is hosting a  literary speed dating event in July as part of their “Week of Love and Lust.”

The idea is that the love of reading is a strong tie that can spark good conversation, affection, and maybe more.  Wonder if such a thing might work north of Oz?

The article on the event at the Sydney Morning Herald is great, and goes on to provide a peek into romance among various publishing types like historians, playwrights, poets, writers festival organizers, novelists, and critics.

Check it out, because I said so! 🙂

  1. Wow! What a brilliant idea. Thinking of boarding a plane… I recently fell a little bit more in love with my favourite actor when I heard that he reads a book a week; I have fantasies of whiling away hours talking to him about what the best book he’s ever read is.
