Robyn Annear & Gus Berger Book Launch

Join us for a conversation with Robyn Annear, author of Corners of Melbourne, and Gus Berger, director of the award-winning documentary, The Lost City of Melbourne, and the author of the new photographic book of the same name.

Robyn and Gus will be chatting about the history of the city at Thornbury Picture House before heading to the bar for signings.

The much-anticipated follow-up to Adrift in Melbourne, Corners of Melbourne defines Melbourne City by its pillar boxes, newsstands, tram stops and lamp-posts, revealing the bizarre, baroque and mostly forgotten stories of its people.

The Lost City of Melbourne is a new photographic book that tells the story of the rise and fall of Melbourne’s built heritage through stunning archival photographs and powerful insights from some of Melbourne’s leading historians & authors. The book forms a companion piece to the independent documentary film of the same name that premiered at the 2022 Melbourne International Film Festival and subsequently won the Best Australian Documentary Award from the Australian Film Critics Association (AFCA)

This (45min) event will be held at TPH on Saturday December 9th. If you can’t make the event or if it has sold out, you are welcome to come for a chat and get a book signed after the in-cinema talk. (approx 5pm)
