Will Volley talks to Erica Smith at The Beacon, Hastings


Join author Will Volley in conversation with Erica Smith about The Opportunity, his thrilling debut graphic novel set in Hastings. A modern-day Death of a Salesman, The Opportunity casts a spotlight on the unforgiving world of door-to-door selling. According to Broken Frontier’s Andy Oliver: ‘This darkly pensive character study is brought to the page with gritty visual realism and a broodingly atmospheric pacing’.  Will has recently moved to Worthing, but has no plans to take up his former job in another Sussex town.

You’ll also get a chance to hear about the latest plans for the Hastings Cartoon Festival in October, and how to get involved. No ticket price but you are strongly recommended to try The Beacon’s delicious home-made pizza and a glass of something to enjoy your evening to the full! Please book on eventbrite to ensure your place. Despite its address, The Beacon is situated below St Mary’s Terrace, so for details of how to find us please download instructions here.
