We are excited to have the fantastic Iurgi Urrutia joining us for inCONceivable. Iurgi is a writer, librarian and the convenor of the Australian Library & Information Association. Based in Kingston Libraries, Victoria. Iurgi manages collection management and acquisition of graphic novels. With a background in education and media studies Iurgi loves to support the children and youth services and can often be found teaching the dark alchemy that is IT to patrons.
He eats books for breakfast and munches on comics and graphic novels for the rest of the day. He has also been known to write fiction and poetry in the dead of night and truly believes that comics have multiple literacy superpowers and that comic book readers read more than fiction readers. Thankfully, research backs up his belief.
