Look out for Sleipnir
Melbourne City of Literature and Reykjavik City of Literature are two of the network created by UNESCO to promote books and reading.
Together, they have created a journey for a magical horse called Sleipnir, who comes from Norse mythology but is now very much a contemporary flying horse, with magical powers to invite the imagination of younger readers to soar.
In August, Sleipnir takes off from Reykjavik, and heads to Bendigo, where he’ll touch down – invisible but very present – at Text Marks the Spot schools day, at Bendigo Writers Festival.
Check out Sleipnir’s Travels here, and help him send postcards from wherever he lands – especially when he lands in Bendigo. Let’s show the world just what a creative place this Central Victorian heartland is.
