Some stories seem universal but others are forever linked to a particular place, whether because of where we first read or heard them, or because the story itself brings a particular location to life. In this podcast, links between story and place are explored. Estelle Tang recommends books for those about to travel, Matt Blackwood speaks about his Locative Literature projects, and Lesley Alway explains the Bookwallah program, which takes Australian authors and stories to another location altogether.
