It's a competition, people! Go forth and VOTE!
2) And speaking of FUN and FEARLESS, if you've ever been to one of his launches, you'll know that that Bernard Caleo is clever and funny and larger-than-life and REALLY knows how to put on an EVENT. If you haven't had the pleasure, you're in LUCK - because, not only is he making a documentary with filmaker Daniel Hayward he's presenting a Graphic Novels! Melbourne! benefit event at the Westgarth Cinema in Northcote on Wednesday 20 June at 6.30pm. Graphic Novels! Melbourne! is a film about, let's see, well, graphic novels. And, you guessed it, Melbourne. Book here for the benefit event, people, book here.
Herewith a trailer for the film - and it features two of our very own Onions. Enjoy!
3) And speaking of clever people AND trailers AND competitions AND magazines, did you know that that very clever Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer, her very clever teenage daughter, have written a young adult novel together. It's true! It's true! It's called Between the Lines and it's a wonderful story about Delilah - who hates school as much as she loves books - AND an unexpectedly real Prince Charming. It's chock full of romance, humour, fantasy and action and it will cast its spell over you. HOORAY!
Herewith, Dolly magazine are offering a chance to win tickets to Jodi and Sammy's events when they visit Australia next month. Hurry, hurry, hurry, people! Competition closes at midnight on 12 June.
