October Author Visits 2010

There's lots happening this autumn. We're just about to start a new wave of author visits and are continuing to promote our new graphic novel Louis - Night Salad!

Well, in fact, it all really started in September. After a summer jam-packed with illustration deadlines and working preparing for the release of our book, we visited one of our favourite North American comic conventions, SPX. We had the pleasure of sharing a panel on Comics for Younger Readers, with Aaron Renier, Raina Telgemeier and Drew Weing, chaired by Johanna Draper Carlson.

Back in the UK, we're going to embark on a series of comic workshops at Shout About Books in Lancashire, before heading to the London Print Studio for the opening party of That's Novel! Lifting Comics from the Page!!!, the exciting new graphic novel exhibition curated by Paul Gravett. Can't wait to see it all! We're so thrilled to be part of it!

We'll be bouncing up and down the country in fact, as we'll be visiting the Isle of Lewis for comic workshops at the Nicolson Institute and An Lanntair Arts Centre before going to Hawick where we are delivering a talk and workshop at the Eildon Tree Festival celebrating 10 years of the magazine!

We'll post our November schedule here soon.
