Two leading lights of graphic novels from Britain and France reflect on their contrasting careers in comics from the 70s to today. An award-winning cartoonist and pioneering publisher of bandes dessinées, Florence Cestac is the only woman to win the Angoulême Festival’s Grand Prix in over forty years. A past Grand Prix nominee herself, Posy Simmonds is much loved for her Guardian strips, notably Gemma Bovery and Tamara Drewe, both adapted into films. Tickets include entry to Comix Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics exhibition, and are available here.
