Following the sold-out success of our exclusive appearance by Jaime Hernandez in May, Comica Festival, in association with Foyles and Jonathan Cape, brings you Family Secret, 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 author of graphic novels Britten & Brülightly and Adamtine, also published by Jonathan Cape. Don’t miss Rutu Modan’s exclusive London event and a unique encounter between two of today’s most gifted international graphic storytellers.
Doors open 6.15pm for 6.30pm start and evening closes with a book signing till 8.30pm.
Venue address: The Gallery, 3rd Floor, Foyles Bookshop, 113-119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EB
