Latitude 2011: We're hosting a UK Graphic Novel Panel!


I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be at Latitude Festival on the 17th July, hosting a graphic novel panel featuring the venerable William Goldsmith, Darryl Cunningham, and Julian Hanshaw. Who the hell do these plucky comics people think they are? Rock stars?

From the Latitude website:
Three of the UK’s most heralded graphic novelists discuss and read from their recent works from Jonathan Cape and Blank Slate Books. William Goldsmith presents Vignettes of Ystov, an engrossing story cycle set within a fictional “vaguely Eastern European” city. Darryl Cunningham talks about the real-life experiences that inspired Psychiatric Tales, his collection of stigma-busting accounts set within an acute psychiatric ward. Winner of the Cape/Observer Comica Graphic Short Story Prize, Julian Hanshaw gives insight into the Vietnam-inspired The Art of Pho, which has been described as “part travelogue, part dream, part cookbook”. Chaired by Martin Steenton, of comic arts blog Avoid the Future. 

It's going to be loads of fun, and although I'm sworn to secrecy at the moment, I can promise that there are going to be plenty of surprises, a wealth of never before seen material, and maybe even an announcement or two made. Tickets are available here. See you there!
