Comica Conversation: Rutu Modan with Hannah Berry


Rutu Modan’s The Property, the first full-length graphic novel from the award-winning author of Exit Wounds, is this summer’s most exciting event in literary comics. On Wednesday August 21st, Comica Festival in association with Foyles Bookshop and Jonathan Cape brings you the rare opportunity to hear Rutu Modan in her exclusive speaking engagement in London, in a lively Comica Conversation with Hannah Berry.

Drawing on Rutu’s family roots, The Property tells the story of Regina Segal, an old woman who travels with her granddaughter Mica to Poland to reclaim a family property lost during the Second World War. Thrust into the unfamiliar surroundings of modern Warsaw, difficult memories begin to surface, and family skeletons emerge from their closets, in front of a cast of complex, absurd and nuanced characters – all finely and subtly drawn, in every sense. Witty, stylish, romantic and moving, Modan’s latest book is a triumph of storytelling, fine lines and exquisite colours in a 220-page hardback (see cover and sample pages below).

Hannah Berry is also published by Jonathan Cape and her graphic novels Britten & Brülightly and Adamtine have been widely acclaimed. Don’t miss this very special encounter between two of today’s most gifted international graphic storytellers.

Where: Foyles Gallery, 3rd Floor, Foyles Bookshop, 113-119 Charing Cross Rd, London WC2H 0EB.

When: Wednesday August 21st, doors open 6.15pm for 6.30pm start and 8.30pm finish.
