Tomi Ungerer is a prolific and multi-faceted artist and storyteller.  His work spans groundbreaking children’s books, social satire and political protest art as well as observational nature drawings, collage and found objects.  He is also a keen prankster and aphorist. Tomi is from Alsace, France and has called West Cork home since the 1970s.

Tomi will be in conversation with Sophie Gorman. Sophie is an arts journalist, broadcaster, critic and columnist who works in print, radio and television. Now based in Paris, she was the Arts Editor for the Irish Independent newspaper for more than a decade and the head theatre reviewer for RTE's flagship arts show Arena for four years.
