Stratford Writers Festival presents Marianne Apostolides and Catherine Mellinger
October 21 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Stratford Writers Festival presents The Perfect Pairing: Combining Art and Literature, with Marianne Apostolides, author of Deep Salt Water, and artist Catherine Mellinger.
Writing a successful novel takes patience, attention to detail, and a love for storytelling. The art of storytelling through the written word is creative and engaging—aspects to which visual artists can relate. An author provides an extraordinary tale that touches readers; a talented visual artist creates imagery that reflects the message the author is trying to convey. Artist Catherine Mellinger has partnered with author Marianne Apostolides to create a piece that demonstrates sensuality and human connection, providing visual representations that are included in Marianne’s book. Join us for a gallery exhibit of the artwork at Revel Cafe and a meet and greet with the two creatives, who will answer questions about the writer/illustrator dynamic and two different facets of storytelling.
