In conversation with graphic novelist Joshua Santospirito
2pm, Saturday the 6th August, 2016
$14 entry fee, which includes museum entry
Immigration Museum, Flinders St, Melbourne

Join award-winning graphic novelist Joshua Santospirito as he talks about the process of making a graphic novella centred on his family’s migration story from the Aeolian Islands.

In 2015 he published Swallows Part One which interweaves the tale of Antonio Santospirito with the growth of the city of Melbourne and our collective histories.

Discover the challenges Joshua faced when making Swallows Part One and see how comics can be used for crossing time and space. Could they be the ultimate vehicle for immigration stories?

Also come and see his exhibition on the ground floor of art from Swallows Part One which is an addition to the Aeolian exhibition currently up in the museum until October this year.
