Graphic Novels

The focus for our last reading forum for 2019 will be the fascinating world of Graphic Novels.

Join comic book maker, performer and broadcaster Bernard Caleo for a discussion about the secret powers by which comic books can unlock multiple literacies and liberate imaginations. Bernard Caleo
Bernard has been making comic books for 30 years. He edited and published the romance comics anthology Tango from 1997 to 2009, co-wrote and co-directed the feature documentary Graphic Novels! Melbourne! with filmmaker Daniel Hayward in 2012, and in 2015 he began the graphic novel publishing enterprise Twelve Panels Press, with comics academic Elizabeth MacFarlane & Allen and Unwin publisher Erica Wagner. In 2018 he illustrated the book How to Win a Nobel Prize, written by Lorna Hendry and published by Piccolo Nero, which was shortlisted for a Western Australia Premier’s Literary Award in 2019.

We will then be joined by two excellent practitioners who will share their own work in this area:

Elizabeth Campbell from Thornbury High School will explore graphic novels for secondary school.

Rebecca Lucas, from Carey Grammar School, will introduce topics relevant to graphic novels for primary readers, including a debate around ‘real reading’, how they are valuable for a diverse and inclusive collection, and support reading for pleasure. Rebecca will also share a few resources for finding suitable graphic novels, including titles for younger readers (Prep - Year 2).

The Kids' Bookshop will be in attendance.
