A pick of Posy Simmonds

Cartoonist and social satirist Posy Simmonds will be talking about her graphic novel adaptations of classic literature in London on Saturday 24th October.

Posy will be demonstrating and discussing her work and particularly her recent book Tamara Drewe which was based on Thomas Hardy’s novel Far From the Madding Crowd. The film adaptation of Posy’s work is in production now.

You might even get a sneak preview of her next project too.

Her distinct and successful method for adaptations and adjustments would certainly make a interesting contrast with Robert Crumb‘s efforts to rewrite the book of Genesis. Perhaps one day we will get them both talking on the same stage…

Posy Simmonds is performing at Hall One of King’s Place at 4pm on Saturday as a part of The Guardian’s Hay Festival.
