Nicola Streeten and Cath Tate at 5 x 15, London


Secret Histories of Women Writers is a conversation between writing collaborators uncovering women’s histories. The Inking Woman by Cath Tate and Nicola Streeten is groundbreaking picture-led celebration of the work of over 100 named British comics artists and cartoonists, and a few more anonymous ones, revealing a wealth of women’s wit and insight spanning 250 years.
They join writer friends Emily Midorikawa and Emma Claire Sweeney, authors of A Secret Sisterhood: The hidden friendships of Austen, Brontë, Eliot and Woolf at a pop-up event held by 5 x 15 at London’s Allbright Club. A double bill of literary co-authors will discuss the power of partnership and uncover the little known stories of women writers and cartoonists – proving that humour and friendship have always been the preserve of women. More information and booking details here.
