Presents a Comic Book Discussion with
Stephanie Alia & Adam Frank
IN THE WORLD OF ALCHERINGA YOUR DREAMS BECOME REALITY, BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN DARKNESS WAGES WAR?
Alcheringa (in the mythology of some Australian Aboriginals) the ‘golden age’ when the first ancestors were created. It is also called the Dreamtime. The word comes (in the late 19th century) from the Aboriginal language Arrernte, and means ‘in the Dreamtime’. Alcheringa is a multimedia comic about a young woman named Madelyn who is troubled by reoccurring nightmares. It isn’t until Madelyn enters the Dream World that she soon discovers what her true purpose is, in a realm polluted by nightmares.
Local author Stephania Alia and Adam Frank talk about Alcherings’s Dream World and discuss their creative process and journey from concept to comic. Interview and discussion in our auditorium.
Followed by an audience Q & A and book signing in the lobby. The event begins at 5 pm.
