Under the Rainbow is the life story of E.W. Cole, a colourful and much loved figure of 19th century Melbourne. Best remembered for his Funny Picture Books, his sense of the absurd and his marketing genius, his wonderful arcade was the first ‘department store’ in Melbourne, replete with a live orchestra, an aviary and monkeys alongside books, ornaments, art, curios and tearooms.

MUP is delighted to parter with Gleebooks to present author Richard Broinowski in conversation with Peter Hack.

This is a free, online event. Bookings can be made here.
