THE BLOG AT THE CROSSROADS
Article: Hannah Berry
Posted: November 11, 2012
Hannah Berry was taken on earlier this year as The Book Trust’s first graphic novel online writer in residence’ and ever since, she’s been posting some highly entertaining and illuminating commentaries on their website - read her whole blog here. As her residency draws to a close this month, Hannah has curated The Book Trust’s first evening dedicated to the graphic novel, organised in association with Comica 2012, the 9th London International Comics Festival.
Under her cheeky title, Comics: Refreshing Parts Literature Can’t Reach, she has convened some of the UK’s brightest and best comics creators for a two-hour, double bill of panel discussions on Monday November 19th at the the Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, London EC1R 3GA, to introduce newcomers and connoisseurs alike to what makes the medium so rewarding to create and to read. Joining her and Paul Gravett as chairs will be Glyn Dillon, Karrie Fransman, Rian Hughes, Simone Lia, Sarah McIntyre, Dave McKean and a special surprise guest to be announced later this week. Tickets cost a mere £6 online or on the door (subject to capacity!). Hannah’s own work has shone out from the start, so here’s a look at her two Cape graphic novels, Britten and Brülightly and Adamtine, plus an exclusive new two-page comic she has created for the latest issue of ArtReview magazine. And be sure to meet Hannah and her guests on the 19th - see you there! Read the rest of my new Article here…
