Forfar ‘Phrogs

The Glasgow based graphic novelists Metaphrog, who are artist Sandra Marrs and writer John Chalmers, are a busy pair when it comes to giving talks and demonstrations of their work on the Louis graphic novel series. Most of the events take place in schools and are therefore not open to the general public but from time to time they do events that are.

Their next event that is open to the general public is at the Forfar Library on West High Street, Forfar at 6pm on Tuesday 30 March 2010. The event is free and while Metaphrog are the first graphic novel creators to give a talk in the library it is hoped that if it proves to be popular enough the library will continue the talks with other local creators in the future.

There are more details of all Metaphrog’s Louis books and their talks on their website.
