Hysterical Women and Graphic Grrrlz

Graphic novels are not just by boys, for boys! Some of most powerful and original examples of the genre have been created by female writers and artists as diverse as Posy Simmonds, Inverna Lockpez and Marjane Satrapi. And this is not a recent phenomenon.

Want to know more? Of course you do. Come along to Central Library next Wednesday (2nd May) from 6.00 – 7.30pm, when illustrator and zinemaker Heather Middleton will give an illustrated talk on the history of graphic novels and zines by women.

When Heather gave a similar talk in Glasgow recently it went down a storm so book now to reserve your place.

This is part of an exciting series of talks and exhibitions celebrating the lives and achievements of some remarkable women, organised in conjunction with Glasgow Women’s Library and The Bonnie Fechters.
