We're ready to host your memories again. Memory Makes Us is taking place in four Australian cities throughout 2014 and today we're proud to announce the authors and topics for Melbourne. The authors begin writing on Sunday 31 August at Federation Square. If you can't make it to the event, you can share your memory with us at any time from now at the project web site.
The Body by Paddy O'Reilly
