COMICA present Rutu Modan in conversation with Hannah Berry - Exclusive London Event
Comica Festival, in association with Foyles and Jonathan Cape, present the rare opportunity to hear the award-winning author of Exit Wounds, discussing her new book The Property -- surely the most hotly anticipated literary comic of the summer. Drawing on her family's 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.
Rutu will be in conversation with Hannah Berry, the widely acclaimed creator of graphic novels Britten & Brülightly and Adamtine, also published by Jonathan Cape.
Venue: The Gallery at Foyles
Tickets: £6, available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/230421
