Paula Knight and Nicola Streeten at Cheltenham Literature Festival


Look pretty; be nice; have babies – three graphic novelists delve into the social expectations of womanhood. Paula Knight’s book The Facts of Life is a funny and moving autobiographical account of the expectations of women to procreate, and why life doesn’t always go to plan. Livestock by Hannah Berry is a dark satire about a young pop star whose life in the public eye is carefully orchestrated to best satisfy a salacious media. In conversation with comics scholar, co-founder of Laydeez Do Comics, and author of the first graphic memoir by a British woman, Billy, Me & You Nicola Streeten.
