As part of the Beyond Words Festival at the Institut Français, Bryan and I will be appearing with Pénélope Bagieu on 15th May. Pénélope’s graphic novel Brazen (originally published in French as Culottées) presents a series of portraits of 30 incredible women, including Josephine Baker, Peggy Guggenheim and Tove Jansson. She’ll be discussing these rebel ladies with us, as we revisit the life of anarchist and Communarde Louise Michel in The Red Virgin and the Vision of Utopia. We’ll be joined by DJ Iko Chérie for some Little Trouble Girls sets. The event is chaired by Paul Gravett.
Tuesday 15 May 2018 6.15pm in English and French £7, conc. £5 at Institut Français 17 Queensberry Pl, Kensington, London SW7 2DT.
Tickets available on the Beyond Words website.
