- La Pastérique, Uani, Violaire Leroy
After walking for a long time across the mountains in a country far away, a young girl discovers the people who live there. She observes their customs as she wanders around, living silently in their midst.
Uani is the story of a seminal journey which speaks poetically about receptiveness to others, their culture, differences, and enigmas.
Violaine Leroy has worked for some of France’s major publishers and newspapers. Her illustrations have been shortlisted at Angoulême International Comics Festival and received a special mention in Bologna in 2015.
