Mariko Tamaki is in town to talk about, well, talk. The award-winning Canadian writer chats with author Maria Lewis about the importance of dialogue in her graphic novels Skim and This One Summer, and in comics such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Supergirl, The Hulk and Adventure Time. What do we mean when we talk about talk? What does talk tell us about a person? How can writers use talk to create interesting characters? Join Mariko and Maria at this talkfest.

Supported by the City of Parramatta and the Consulate General of Canada, Sydney.
