Let’s illustrate comics!
Meg Hewison
Rope Store – 12:30 – 13:15
Ages 10+

Graphic novelist Meg will be talking about her book Dancing With Lights, how she works as an illustrator and how you can too!

Deep in the north, a small village of cats live out their days in a clifftop village. They fish, create goods from leather and other materials, but most importantly – every night they paint the northern lights in the sky.

Over the years, the lights have grown larger and more colourful, covering up the stars beneath them. Their sister race, the star hoppers, requested that the light-painters allow the stars to show more; but Foxglove, the leader of the light-painters, rejected their request and retaliated by covering the stars with her lights. After trying to reason with their leader, Oakley and Sorrel, two light- painters – resolve to journey out to the star-painters home to save the northern lights.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
