Comics: Reaching the Parts Other Literature Can’t
Presented by Booktrust and Comica Festval
Mon 19 Nov 2012, 7:00pm
Free Word Lecture Theatre
Graphic novelist and Booktrust online writer in residence Hannah Berry ('Britten and Brulightly', 'Adamtine') invites you to try a comic or two on for size. In association with Comica Festival, Hannah and Paul Gravett will be in conversation with some of the country's best graphic novelists.
On 19 November 2012, you can see Simone Lia ('Fluffy', 'Please God, Find Me A Husband), Sarah McIntyre ('Verne and Lettuce', 'Airship'), Glyn Dillon ('The Nao of Brown') and more graphic novelists still to be announced.
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.
