Turning Your Life into Comics


with Lucie Arnoux and Lucy Sullivan
At the Century Club - Soho W1

Thursday the 23rd March 2023 Doors at 6:30 pm, talk begins at 7 pm

Autobiography has become a central genre in contemporary comics with notable exponents being Robert Crumb (Fritz the Cat), Art Spiegelman (Maus), and Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis). But what does it really take to transform your personal, sometimes private experiences into pictures and words for all to see and read?

Lucie Arnoux and Lucy Sullivan are two of the most distinctive voices from the current generation of comics memoirists. In this illustrated talk they will share their paths and processes in an enlightening and inspiring conversation.
