BEN KATCHOR: Comica Conversation with Peter Blegvad
America's master satirist of urban absurdities Ben Katchor (www.katchor.com) is your guide through the foibles and follies of our modern metropolis. See the city through his eyes and explore such bemusing notions as the little-known property market ripe for development under your bed, or the six-acre false forest of artificial trees in New Jersey designed for hay-fever sufferers. An acclaimed cartoonist and public speaker, Katchor will be performing 'picture-recitations' of his full-colour comic strips, published in the leading American architecture journal Metropolis and compiled into his latest graphic novel Hand-Drying in America, selected by Time magazine and National Public Radio as one of their 'Books of 2013'.
Join Katchor in lively conversation with friend and fellow American Peter Blegvad, singer-songwriter and creator of the Leviathan strip as featured in The Independent.
Doors open at 6.15 pm.
