LITERATURE WEEKEND IN THE CITY
Few other illustrators and storytellers are able to capture the essence of the bond between humans and their animals with as much care and thought as Shaun Tan.
One of our brightest exports, he will join us via live stream for a conversation about Dog, his redesigned release of excerpts from 2018’s dark and sharply observant collection Tales from the Inner City. As we try to move through a global pandemic, our four-legged friends have never been more important.
Shaun Tan grew up in Perth and works as an artist, writer and film maker in Melbourne. He is best known for illustrated books that deal with social and historical subjects through dream-like imagery, widely translated throughout the world and enjoyed by readers of all ages. Shaun has also worked as a theatre designer, a film concept artist, and won an Academy Award for the short animated film The Lost Thing. In 2011 he received the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in Sweden, in recognition of his services to literature for young people.
