Join Joshua Santospirito to celebrate the largest art project of his life at the book launch, performance and exhibition opening of art from the new graphic novel about migration and family.

The beautifully hand-drawn true story of his visit to the Aeolian Islands of Italy with his parents to seek out past connections and family roots. Joshua and his father hope to locate the burial place of Joshua’s great-great-grandfather on the island of Salina. But it’s not always so easy to find the past you’re looking for, nor to travel with your parents.

Launch Event will include :
– Short storytelling performance by Joshua and Natalya Bing based on the book;
– Book to be launched by the awesome Nunami Sculthorpe-Green;
– Art exhibition opening of art from the book, and related to the book, some of which is for sale.

Copies of the book will be for sale on the night and throughout the exhibition, but they are ALSO available at all good bookstores around the island of Lutruwita. Out from July 2 nationwide through Scribe publications. 

This event is happening on the stolen land of the Muwinina people. 
We pay our respects to the Palawa people of Lutruwita, their connection to their lands and their ongoing storytelling traditions.
