Returning the Gift Conference in Milwaukee, WI
As many of you already know, “Super Indian Volume One” is now in it’s second printing. The books just arrived from our friends at A&K Printing Co. here in Los Angeles and they are stunning! The second edition will be available on Amazon.com shortly — more on that when it’s a done deal.
Arigon Starr is traveling to Milwaukee, Wisconsin tomorrow to attend the 20th Annual Returning the Gift Convention. Held at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee in the Hefner Convention Center, the conference will be attended by hundreds of Native American writers from around the country.
Lee Francis IV of Wordcraft Circle made sure to add a “Natives in Comics” panel to this year’s gathering. Arigon and Lee will talk about the history of Native people in comics and how to adapt your writing to the comic book/graphic novel format. Both Lee and Arigon are really entertaining speakers — so expect a lively panel with lots of laughs, insight and education.
There are two different sessions. Here’s the details:
Wednesday, September 5th from 3:15pm to 4:30pm
UW-Milwaukee Hefner Conference Center

See you there!
