Kudelka's Way

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 
10 August 2019
Author / Presenters: 
Lindy Burns, Jon Kudelka

Jon Kudelka is best-known for his political cartoons that run in newspapers around the country, but he's also an artist and writer, with a passion for publishing. Before he teamed up with James Jeffrey to create a "Wonk's Dictionary", he published 101 uses for a John Howard, a book about his hometown Hobart, and a book about whisky with fellow cartoonist, First Dog on the Moon. Lindy Burns meets this adaptable man, to find out how he launched himself into self-publishing and came out profitably, whether he still finds politics funny, and what it's like looking at the rest of the country from the vantage point of Hobart.
