Book launch: A Guide to Historic St Kilda

Readings St Kilda — 112 Acland St, St Kilda, Victoria, 3182

Nearly everyone in Melbourne has a St Kilda story. Many old photo albums include fading pictures of aunts and uncles sitting on the moon at Luna Park. Gen Xers fondly recall their youth spent in the Crystal Ballroom rocking to Iggy Pop and Hunters and Collectors. Just about all of us have paddled at ‘the beach’, browsed the Acland Street cake shops windows or indulged with friends and family at local eatery or bar.

Join David Willis for a discussion of his new book, A Guide to Historic St Kilda that tells the stories of many of the places you’ve visited in the suburb and hear some nifty facts you may not have known. Where was the alpaca paddock? Who has the Palais chandelier? Was there a Banksy painting in a St Kilda laneway?
