It was an exceptional evening of conversation listening to two of Australia’s most prominent illustrator’s, Jim Pavlidis and Michael Leunig.

Election eve heated up the discussion adding to the work stories of the two colleagues from their couple of decades at The Age. Then into art speak and of course much philosophy about today’s world. As well as answering many questions, each guest had ample time to talk to both Jim and Michael with the event finishing up way past 10pm.

QG&W would like to thank Michael Leunig, Jim Pavlidis, Nicola Dierich (Michael’s assistant) and all 16 guests who made this a very special evening.

More gratitude to the Queenscliffe Literary Festival for another amazing year of events – perhaps our best yet!

Thank you to Loretta Barker for the delicious supper and to Oakdene for providing the wine.
