Before the Event: ‘Evermore’ Isobelle Carmody book launch
South Perth Library is very excited to be hosting the Perth launch of Isobelle Carmody’s new graphic novel ‘Evermore’.
‘Evermore’ began as a novella intended for a collection, but grew into something larger and stranger and darker than expected. It took a conversation with illustrator and graphic novelist Dan Reid, to make Isobelle realise it was a graphic novel. While Dan completed his incredible illustrations for Evermore, Isobelle finished the second in her Land of the Lost series, which she also illustrated.
And she has now completed the last of her Obernewtyn Chronicles, ‘The Red Queen’ while undertaking a PhD at the University of Queensland. As you can see, Isobelle is a prolific writer! She will be speaking about her experience of writing as well as launching ‘Evermore’.
To give you a sense of Isobelle and her writing watch this short clip from Penguin Publishing:
