Peckham Library, 122 Peckham Hill St, London SE15 5JR
The Peckham Graphic Novel Book Group make a return visit to Bryan Talbot’s ‘Grandville’, where France won the Napoleonic Wars and anthropomorphism is the name of the game as Detective Inspector Archie LeBrock (badger) and faithful chum Roderick Ratzi (rat) investigate the baffling murder of artist Gustave Corbeau (corpse) while Baron Aristotle Krapaud (toad) and his assorted industrialist chums plot a violent overthrow of the government with their automaton soldiers. It’s ‘Les Miserables’ meets Conan Doyle in the worst, or best, furry party ever! Read the book and then join us to chat about it!
Thursday 21st April
5:30pm – 7:00pm
Barbican Library, Silk Street, EC2Y 8DS
The Barbican Comic Forum is an informal group dedicated to the understanding and enjoyment of the multifaceted medium of comic books and graphic novels. Make friends, converse, get recommendations and choose from a wide selection of books to borrow and take home. From novices to fanatics: open to all. Three things to note: 1. If you don’t have a City of London library card you can now join online (Anyone can join – you don’t have to live or work in the city to be a member: so come on – what’s stopping you?). 2. If you’re a little late – don’t worry about it. You can still just grab a chair and join in. 3. For those of you old enough: when the session finishes there will be a few of us heading to The Masque Haunt.
6:45pm – 7:45pm
Dalston CLR James Library, Dalston Lane, E8 3BQ
