CO.AS.IT. invites you to a very special event: the launch of the new graphic novel THE ISLANDS WHERE WE LEFT OUR ANCESTORS, The beautifully hand-drawn true story of artist Joshua Santospirito’s visit to the Aeolian Islands of Italy with his parents to seek out past connections and family roots.
We will also be launching an exhibition of original art from the making of the book which will continue until November 22. The book and the exhibition will be launched by comics maestro, speechmaker extraordinaire, and Aeolian descendent Bernard Caleo.
Joshua will be signing books and will also present a short storytelling performance adapted from the book with Natalya Bing on violin.
FREE, but there are limited seats, please RSVP at https://www.coasit.com.au/events/events-archive/1002-the-islands-where-we-left-our-ancestors-exhibition-opening
‘Meaningful, poignant, and at times hilarious, this sumptuous book brings personal experience into close contact with a multilayered past, encompassing language, family history, mythology, and cultural memory.’ ~ SAFDAR AHMED, AUTHOR OF THE NSW PREMIER’S BOOK OF THE YEAR STILL ALIVE
More about the book at the Scribe publications website, available at bookstores across Australia from July 2.
