Edinburgh International Book Festival 2018 - John Dunning Michael Kennedy and Javi Rey 03

Last night I was chairing a talk with three authors and artists from SelfMadeHero to discuss their graphic novels, John Harris Dunning and Michael Kennedy for their compelling book Tumult, and Spanish writer and artist Javi Rey for his astonishing adaptation of Jesus Carrasco's Out in the Open.

 

Javi speaks some English but for the event on stage we had a charming translator, Carolina, first time I have worked with an interpreter, but it all went very smoothly and we all had a good chat about the books. Javi and Michael were not content to merely sign the books afterwards, they both created bespoke art for each person who waited to get their copy signed after the event (Javi even used watercolours!). Both books were amazing reads and we could have spent twice as long discussing them....
