Appearances. Keeping up with them.

In my last post I introduced my part in the program of the Melbourne Writers Festival. Now here's the Brisbane program. They're shining a spotlight on the 'graphic novel' and are flying in Brian Talbot from England, Guy Delisle from Canada, Sean Tan from Perth and Nikki Greenberg from Melbourne. I will have already crossed paths with these last two in Melbourne. There's also Leigh Rigozzi, I think from Sydney, who is the only one I haven't met before. My pal Daren White, well known in this parish, also plays a role, chairing one of the panels. I have a feeling there may be a fourth appearance which I haven't listed here, which is part of the separate schools program. More on that when I figure it out. (update: if you read this earlier, I made a mistake in that second session, now fixed. I'm with Brian Talbot first, then I'm chairing a session with Greenberg, Delisle and Rigozzi. Third session has the biggest line-up.)

Hi Eddie,
Got your email, thanks.
Leigh Rigozzi is Hobart lad and a nice fellow. I've been buying his stuff for a several years now. Lovely stuff. Hope you have fun at the festivals.
