Posy Simmonds: Comedies of English Manners

Wednesday 14th November 2012 6:30pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

PosyFew writers or artists have chronicled this country's ever-changing clashes of class and cultures with such laser-sharp precision as The Guardian's cartoonist Posy Simmonds. From her weekly strips centred round the Weber family or slices of Literary Life to her gripping serials Gemma Bovery and Tamara Drewe inspired by Flaubert and Hardy, Posy is our undisputed Grande Dame of graphic novels. She talks and draws in conversation with Paul Gravett, co-director of Comica Festival and curator of her first major one-woman retrospective in Brussels.

 

Tickets: £8. To purchase tickets, visit the Comica website here.
