All-Star Line-Up for Comica/Book Trust Graphic Novel Night!
Posted: November 16, 2012
On Monday November 19th, 6.30 for 7-9pm, acclaimed graphic novelist and Booktrust online writer in residence Hannah Berry (above), author of the Jonathan Cape graphic novels Britten and Brulightly, Adamtine, invites you to try a comic or two on for size at Comics: Refreshing Parts Other Literature Can’t Reach. For this extra special evening curated by Hannah Berry, Comica Festival and Book Trust combine forces to present two hours and two panels hosted by Hannah and Paul Gravett in conversation with some of the country’s best graphic novelists, for the bargain ticket price of only £6!
These include Glyn Dillon (The Nao of Brown), Karrie Fransman (The House That Groaned), Rian Hughes (Yesterday’s Tomorrows, On The Line), Simone Lia (Fluffy, Please God, Find Me A Husband), Sarah McIntyre (Vern and Lettuce, Nelson, Airship) and Dave McKean (Cages, Celluloid, Pictures That Tick) and a special appearance by Posy Simmonds (Gemma Bovery, Tamara Drewe).
They will tell you why they love the funny books. You can ask them questions about comics. We can all rejoice in graphic novels. The world can watch as we present to you just why graphic novels are just as good as literary fiction. Come along!
You can also read Hannah Berry’s column on the evening at The Huffington Post. Our pals from Gosh! Comics will be providing a bountiful smorgasbord of these authors’ works for purchase and personalisation. Book your tickets without delay! Photograph of Hannah Berry © Emily Gravett.
