P&W Christmas Party Dec 1. Great to see Melbourne hipsters, Vic region and P&W afficionados in one happy throng. Terrific readings from Ken Bolton, Les Wicks, Jill Jones, Cameron Lowe and David Prater. We love the Bella Union bar at Trades Hall - very cool on a hot day..
Cool folk and early birds, P&W Christmas party
