Changed Date!

September LDA will now be held on WEDNESDAY 25TH instead of Thursday 26th September.

The reason is because LDA alumni Mandy Ord will be launching her new book NY at Readings, 6.30pm that on the Thursday. More details of Mandy's event here:

So go to Ladies' Drawing Auxiliary on Wednesday and then Mandy's launch on Thursday!

August was a bold experiment.

I programmed a phone/skype interview as one of the spots. I like the idea, it broadens my pool of potential guests, but a physical guest tends to drag other people with them for moral support, guaranteeing us an audience, even on a dark and rainy Melbourne night.

Sooo...Georgia and Alexis will now speak at the September event and will be joined by Adele Walsh and Jordi Kerr from the Centre for Youth Literature.

Adele and Jordi will be giving us the low down on comics and graphic novels in the youth literature publishing scene. The Centre for Youth Literature are on the frontline when it comes to convincing teachers and librarians that comics have a place in literary criticism, discussion and education. What are they finding out?
