Julian and Chie invite you to step into the Tokyo Ghost Cafe, weaving prose and manga together to re-tell classic ghost stories from Japan. Along the way, they’ll share their personal encounters with the other world, and the story of their collaboration and research on the tsunami recovery coastline to create their Carnegie short-listed book Tsunami Girl. From spirit cats to celebrity ghosts, from Tokyo to Mount Fear in the Far North of Japan, the event concludes with a live drawing and reading, as Julian and Chie conjure their own take on a classic yōkai monster. 11-14yrs
