Bendigo Writers Festival
A Guide to Life and After
There is no limit to the places Zana Fraillon takes her young readers, with wondrous and rich imaginings. Her novel The Lost Soul Atlas is bold and beautiful, inviting us to venture with two young friends into the mysterious divide between life and death. Zana talks to Sarah Mayor Cox about quests, friendship, loyalty and the fragile loveliness of life itself.

Peter Van Den Ende's mesmerising graphic art book is a wordless fantasy epic, the story of a brave little boat that sets out across oceans and into a world beyond imagination. It's been hailed around the world as a strange and beautifully transcendent story. The Belgian illustrator joins Zana Fraillon to talk about how tiny details can mirror our greatest fears and hopes. How does an image capture emotions? When there is so much on screens, why do we still respond to an artwork in a book?
